North Facing Aspects of Forum Ridge

South Rockies

Had some fun AT skiing in non-burnt trees and burnt trees on north facing aspects of Forum Ridge, in hopes of avoiding sun crusts and/or wind hammered snow. Skiing was good in sheltered north facing areas in the trees, but a bit rugged above and below the band of intact trees. Wanted to ski below Forum/Wall Lake saddle, but we worried about high winds and wind deposition hazard. The upcoming storm(so) should help with snow depth hopefully!
