    it is most likely iced up and then a huge dump brings bad news.

    Not quite getting your answer. In terms of Spring in Tucks this storm is good. Just don't go poking around for a bit. I am sure Wildcat if it can spin will be great and if it doesn't spin the skinners will be there.

    Snow gain in Tucks with this storm - yes. The issue, and likely could be one for a while to come, is as Puck it was alluding too, Tucks had a thaw/rain/freeze up even earlier this week. This snow that's going to fall and also blow into the bowl via the winds that will howl is going to create a mighty unstable snow pack for a while. This is the type of situation where potentially for weeks it could be an issue with avalanche risk, and if you get a big slide, well some of the bowl will ultimately end up with deep snow, but other parts could very well be back down to the iced layer currently there. So hopefully someone won't act stupidly and venture out into what are likely to be high avalanche danger conditions in not just tucks, but many open slide areas in the White's until the pack eventually stabilizes...... Hence the bad news side of this storm

    These seem like common conditions to me for MW in winter. I was pointing out he was quoting and replying to a post and this storm is most definitely a gain for Wildcat and Tucks for the Spring.

    Yupp some of those slide areas that look so tempting are more dangerous than a duck in a tent.

    It will most certainly be a Tucks spring year - even last year I hit it on Easter Sunday.

    Already we have a Considerable danger rating for today (low increasing to considerable as the storm moves through):

    Hoping for good bonding to the existing ice layer. Likely it will be sketch for several days, but at the least the Sherb will be filled in nicely.
    All skiing is good. Some skiing isn't as good. But all skiing is good.

    Well with the icing up and new snow that is probably not that sticky then throw wind into thee mix. Sticking to the ice more than likely will not happen very well. The fluffier the snow the more dangerous to ski on with ice underneath. I cannot imagine anyone going up there this early. Would coverage even be deep enough yet?

    I would save the magic comp til later in the year. They literally had 0" base on many places on the mountain before this storm.
