South Facing Corn Runs now that its warming up? (not so much)

 Ventured out to Manzo bowl to check out potential corn action and found some of the most interesting snow conditions I have ever seen. The high winds after the holiday storm combined with this long dry period and plenty of sun has led to some wild snow conditions... although fun to observe they are a bear to ski if still frozen (which they were in my case). Make sure to do your due diligence before committing to any long lines... think Simon and Garfunkle's song "Diamonds on the soles of her shoes" because extraordinary sun/wind cups do cut just like diamonds...



  1. Early stage of "penitentes", which form due to sublimation. I saw them this Wednesday at Manzanita and a west facing slope off the upper part of ATW. Weird.
