The strong crust when all the way to the top at Nordstrom and was supportive to our boots walking around. There was about 5 cm of recent snow overtop that had been blown around and loaded the opposite slopes to normal. We found up to 20 cm of stubborn wind slab in immediate lee areas at ridge top, and this area had a big area that wind could strip snow from. The wind slab wasn't moving easily and gave non sudden results in our pit. The best riding was on low angle slopes where you could avoid the crust a bit.

Snow conditions were: Crusty. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes. Riding quality was ok.
