Little Sifton traverse. Good uptrack on grizzly shoulder if a little exposed to the grizzly path to start but trades for less difficult steep trees. Good snow on grizzly shoulder with no wind affect or instability. Some snow balling. Wind affect in the alpine both up to the Little Sifton col and in the hermit moraines. Thing wind crust on the surface of alpine zone in hermit. No instabilities noticed however.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Windy, Cloudy, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Dense trees, Convex slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was good.
