Hollyburn Trees Christmas Eve

Duncan

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all down the slope, Lots of storm slabs were sliding so we each said “k, nope”. We transitioned at summit and skied down with care, In the hopes that stability soon would be there. (First picture is from a slab I popped off during the ski out. Second picture is some hoar formation on a tree branch I saw during the climb.)

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
