Can't Win 'em All - Sketchy South Fork
We had such good conditions yesterday at Hatcher's Delia Creek, and with a good report from Arctic Valley and reasonable weather forecast, today's tour up South Fork should be really good. Sound logic, bad outcome. We found thin snow and windboard. The supportable nature of the crust was the best thing going for the snowpack at Swiss Bowl. The dust-on-crust conditions did not merit a second lap.
