Did the birthing canal on T4,thurs feb 20th @9:30 am.from the summit to the pinch of the couloir was hero turns deep soft with the sun just starting to put an effect on the top 5 cm @9:30am. The convex feature getting into the run was awkward as the wind was coming up the chute and hitting cornice hard while the sun pounds the top. Riding was decent in the actual chute,major wind effect in the pinch of the chute but we rode fast and limited exposure time. All in all a great run in the slack.
Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.
Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
