Conditions are pretty good up to tree line. We skied several laps from up to 2500m. Variable conditions in alpine, lots of wind effect. Witnessed a major cornice failure from above large rock face on Noseeum mountain. Heard a loud audible, suspect from cornice fall. Strong gusts and light snow in the afternoon. Moist snow below 2100m in late afternoon.
Snow conditions were: Wet, Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy, Windy, Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
