Good alpine ski quality when you could get away from wind affect. Traveled on most aspects and elevation bands through the day, SE ALP aspect produced best ski quality. Did a quick hardness profile, still learning though. Overall nice day out, especially once the sun warmed things up a bit. Have fun and play safe out there!

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.

Traveled on everything from deep powder BLT to bulletproof wind affect in the ALP. Aspect skied and tested had a few buried wind slabs present, but didn't present issue while skiing. Even on the wind affect there were no signs of instability.
