Flora Pk trail in good shape, with some deadfall. Snow begins consistently at around 1100 m, but care was needed on the down due to thin coverage. Recent warm weather and sun had created tricky snow conditions for skiing, with breakable crust, heavy and wet snow from the summit. Literally all of the S and SE avalanche paths down Cupola Ck had gone probably earlier in the week with the warming/sun. Yesterday this wasn't a big concern by the time we crossed them as there was no sun nor significant warming.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Heavy, Wet. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Foggy, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Dense trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was terrible.
