Gotta watch those subtle aspect changes this time of year! (see photo 1) 🤣 The 10-15 cm of new snow skied REALLY well on north facing slopes but had potential to get crusty or shmooey fast if you (accidentally) hit anything else! The storm snow seemed well bonded and we saw nothing but rollerballing on steep solar facing slopes. It was a great spring day to enjoy low avalanche hazard in the Crowsnest!
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
