A day of green!! ☘☘☘ while we don’t love seeing this much green so early, it’s pretty spectacular in the ⛰⛰⛰ these days!🌞🌞 We spent the day in the Crowsnest Pass and found a well settled snowpack and only saw one small loose out of extreme terrain. Winds were light and the temperature at 2200 m at noon was -0.5 degrees. We skied a northwest facing slope that varied between soft and wind affected. Not bad! ⛷ since we haven’t had new snow for awhile.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
