North Arm Hills....Almost

NL Field Team

Our objective was "The Bowl" in the North Arm Hills. Unfortunately, poor light, and no overhead visibility, kept us from getting into the Bowl, or anywhere beyond the foothills. 30-40cm of new snow made for great travel, but low light, kept the sledding slow and technical. Good coverage with yesterdays snow, but evidence that it did come with some wind in the open slopes and meadows, where we found things much firmer and wind pressed. Winds were picking up when we left, and there's definitely lots of snow going to be moved around tonight.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
