All-fun on Al-ston
Variable riding conditions was the name of the game today. Sun exposed terrain became very wet, while shaded terrain held nice powder. This was the case right up and into the alpine. Snow was very heavy by the end of the day with temps above zero. Dense clouds rolled in around 2pm. Previous melt freeze crust would break under skis. Plenty of pinwheeling in the alpine. No avalanches witnessed.
