Skied the north line off of Eliot Peak. Snow wasn't as good as we'd hoped. Stiff wind affected snow (5-10cm) over a hard surface. Variable and breakable in spots. East facing line back into the main bowl above the Evelyn runs was softer and less variable. Saw evidence of naturals from a few days ago on primarily northeast facing slopes.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.

Snowpack

Steeper sun or wind affected slopes (south and west aspects) were firm (difficult to edge or dig a boot in) in spots. Otherwise older wind transported snow was the dominant surface condition.

Weather

Scattered flurries late in the day. Less than 1cm /hr. Mix of sun and cloud in the morning. Overcast in the afternoon.
