5 days (Apr. 17-21) was spent traversing from the Bear Glacier to Mount Dickie. Loose wets to sz 1 observed on Apr 17 on S-E slopes. Deep persistent slabs to sz 2 on S-E slopes at ~1500-1700m likely releasing during warm up last week. No recent cornice failures observed. With cool clear nights crusts weren't breaking down until late into the afternoon.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wet. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was ok.
