Bushy Belle

Some decent powder turns to be found at upper elevations at Belle today. Total snowpack amounts range from around 75cm on southerly faces to 200cm on north faces at treeline. There are still a lot of willows and stumps poking up through the snow to watch out for and it’s not that great below 1650m but we managed to find some good skiing between. The alpine has been hit pretty hard with recent strong wind but there are pockets of soft powder in sheltered areas that make for good sledding too. We found no major problems with the snowpack other than some isolated wind slabs 15-25cm deep in lee areas that had the potential to pop out some small avalanches.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was good.
