Great day exploring the north side of the Paleo glacier, snow was highly variable, from boot deep powder to edgable wind crusts. Many small slides were observed. Most dry loose point releases on steep features, S toE aspects, size 1. We only saw one crowned previous slide (see photo) likely crown depth of about 50cm, NE aspect, size 2. Also a windslab triggered by cornice fall, E facing. We stayed away from one steeper alpine line, trust when your hackles start standing up!

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.


Beautiful blue bird day, sun was warm and the shade was cold! Sun crusts didn't form on most slopes. Temperature held steady almost all day!
