Skied the Wapta in a day and added in Mt Gordon with my friends Leif and Joren. The day was sunny and temps were -5 to -10 on the glaciers, but it was below -20 at the car at 7am. Travel was great up high. Boot deep pow and most of the glacier/crevasses seemed well bridged. There was point release on the east face of Trapper Peak. Winds were high at ridgetop.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Weather

Moderate to strong winds at ridgetop - light on the glacier

Avalanche
