North East facing alpine/treeline slope, HST was ~210cm, with the first crust showing at 53cm down. The nasty December layer is sitting 100cm down and showing as 10mm solid ice with facets above and compact ice below. 3 column tests performed which showed decent pack bonding with resistant fractures around 53cm.

Snow conditions were: Powder. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Steep slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was amazing.
