Zero degrees at 9:30 start, very warm.wet heavy snow about 5cm on top of powder sugar. You could push poles a0ll way to bottom in some places. Lots of sharks. Track up is pretty ok, except creek is open, not frozen. We went right at lake, creek again not frozen. Here was best snow, pretty solid base. Skied down Gulley and as got to treeline became more variable. Got stuck in open creeks, boot packed out. Saw on north facing slopes some slab avalanches from snow loading.
