-3C at the car at the start of the day. Snow was typically 10-15cm powder over a supportive crust. Certain areas had 5cm powder over a breakable crust ~5cm thick. Alpine was calm with minor wind effect on the ridge. Riding was awesome on top but snow quickly got heavy and sticky as we dropped elevation. Major pinwheeling from snow kicked loose by skis. No signs of instability. Avoided some of the larger convexities. +2C at the car at the end of the day.
