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


We found a wind? Crust about 10cm down. And At approximately 85cms down we found the deep persistent layer. The snow between the wind crust and the persistent layer seems well bonded. The deep persistent layer did not fail during the compression test. The upper crust settled at compression test 4 from the wrist. Pit test was done on a north north east aspect at 2070 meters.
