Tryst Lake Super Slope

alex.i.macdonald

Variable conditions at Tryst Lakes. Super heavy and wet at low elevations and anywhere hit by the sun. Very little coverage in the trees and lots of bugs. Highly recommend bringing skin wax and a fresh ski wax before your travels. The snowpack in the treeline/alpine is super solid with heavy powder sluffing on the surface and a very solid base in the chutes. Saw a few 1-1.5 slide debris along the way but no significant evidence of recent large activity. The Superslope appears to be solid but hasn't been ridden yet. However, that cornice overhead is a massive risk. Ready to give way at any moment especially after the constant sun exposure. Highly recommend extreme caution under that overhead hazard. The rest of the chutes rode really well
