Rock Isle SSV

bryan.daneau

Best conditions to date this year - boot top and even knee deep at Rock Isle. Skied all chutes and we were popping pillows left and right. HS of 90cm on this N aspect with about 45-50cm over the N crust. Crust was about 8cm and facets underneath. Ski pen on the uptrack was a solid 25cm in most locations. No signs of instabilities noted nor did we encounter any wind slabs although we were at treeline. Snowed all day - more so in the AM. Low to mod winds at most where we were.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
