Upper loop EC on Saturday, March 23

Classic Xcd Upper Loop Saturday afternoon. Apparently had not been groomed since the 21st (?). Several “water hazards” to navigate and many pole plants went straight through the weak, soft snowpack with no bottom. And, large portions of classic track were either missing or shallow from melt. Was stopped from skiing down the backside track by a previously flooded area covered with dirt. Still, had several lengthy passages with decent snow and overall a gratifying afternoon.
