Hmm... what's the snow profile look like these days? When I was in around Christmas there was a 20" base or so that acquired a solid ice crust before New Year's. Putting another quick 4 feet on top of that seems like a recipe for some interesting avalanche potential.

Then again, an avalanche in the Mid-A? Well, it's happened at Wisp before...

Wouldn't worry about inbounds or side country. The Pow Hounds have compacted most of the new snow into a stable layer. cool
