Glacier National Park

Mostly great visibility on the Youngs traverse. Saw some previous (48hr+) slabs in Lee features, and a couple of older but sizable cornice failures. Lee features were holding windslabs, with a hand shear down 30cm, but not reacting to any skier traffic. Cold slow snow on the ski out. Budget extra time and layers!

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.
