We did the loop around Mt Mara. The logging road was in good shape for driving to snow then sledding to the cabin without any large whoops. The day remained cold with light wind and a persistent cloud over the mountain. Quick alpine travel conditions with 10 to 20 cm consolidated or wind pressed powder over a hard crust. We looked for wind slabs but didn't find any evidence of them in our riding area. This gave us confidence to ride steep alpine terrain.

Snow conditions were: Hard, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold. We rode: Alpine slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
