Went skiing up towards Sphinx mt near Gray Creek pass using some logging roads to gain access. Still lots of early season hazards down low with about 40cm of new snow on the logging roads. Survival skiing in the trees with some good turns in mellow terrain near tree line.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
