The lower 4/5 of kindergarten couloir disgorged it's contents - likely during the last storm. This made booting up easy, but care was required skiing down through deep crusty runnels. Morning crusts were softening up at lake level for the ski out, but there's great powder where it hasn't slid not far above on N aspects. The day started out sunny and cool, but clouds moved in by afternoon - possibly causing some radiant melting at lower elevations.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Sunny. We rode: Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
