Found a fairly thick crust from the road up to above the power lines to around 1100m. Fairly dense powder after that, but decent enough turns. Dug a pit around 1500m by the two small lakes. Total snowpack was 300cm. CT were 23 and 24 down 45cm below recent storm snow. Temp hovering around -5, and started to snow fairly heavily around 11:00.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Dense trees, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
