Starting to fill in out there. 55cm snow depth at Fraser growing to 75cm at the summit. Wind redistributed much of the storm snow into variable surfaces. Some hard and scoured. For early November its not bad though a few more storms would be good to get the coverage we need. Snowpack was supportive to travel in the open. Near trees and creeks, it sucked. I wouldn't bring my sled out there yet. Evidence of a wind slab avalanche cycle to size 2 a few days old now.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
