Late season conditions on Wymper. The warmth and sun had not melted the crust on the north side by 1130am when we skiied out. One party attempted the summit, we didn’t see them after they passed us. In valley bottom the snow was wet and getting isothermal. The creek is melting out fast with many open pools. Lots of wet slide debris below the east facing slopes, we stayed on the opposite side.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wet. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Stormy, Warm. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was ok.
