Windy Day in the Alpine near Black Prince. Wind was gusty from every friggen direction but had calm moments. Out of the wind it was very warm. We dug a pit on a NE aspect alpine fan area. Snow depth was 2m. CTM 5 and 85cm down we had a broken up, non-planar chunk show itself. ECT produced no results. Observed a small maybe SZ0.25 slab let loose. Don’t know if we triggered it or not.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Windy, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.
