Spent the day ski touring up Woodbury Ck in Kokanee park. We parked at around 1300 m and skinned up to 2000 m. On our way up we were surprised not to find the new crust from the hot spell. It was just a denser layer of snow with about 25 cm of new snow on top. We had good visibility and could see sloughing of the new snow at treeline and in the alpine from yesterday and a couple of small wind slabs in the alpine that looked older. There were a few wet loose avalanches from the hot spell but no slabs from then. The wind was calm and we didn't see any blowing snow.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We avoided: Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
