We did a couple of laps of east faces down toward Caspar Creek then exited via Cheques in the Mail on the West side of Vantage Ridge. Slopes were recently wind loaded but had yet to form slab. Stability was good throughout the day, but strong SW winds in the afternoon began to form wind slab as we were leaving. Good coverage down to Cerise Creek, but recent high freezing levels have made the ski out extremely icy.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Stormy, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
