Table Mountain had gotten about four inches of fresh snow near the summit from the previous day's storm, diminishing to none at the base. Most of the Bardini Canyon run had 2-3 inches which consolidated rapidly and annealed well to the base. Rollerballs did not propagate and ski cuts produced no sliding sluff.

A spring pleasure to ski. Encountered half a dozen other skiers. Observed little wind loading on this run, but there was quite a lot of it on north-facing aspects of all mountains as I drove to Mammoth afterward.
