We managed to squeeze in a couple hours of good powder riding up at Renshaw before the light got too flat in the stormy weather to ride. A recent strong wind event had wreaked the riding in some open alpine areas and also resulted in some small naturally triggered wind slabs and cornice collapses on lee north east slopes. We found the best riding was in lower alpine and treeline areas that had been sheltered from the recent wind.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Stormy. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
