Sea to Sky

Very deep trail breaking out to Oboe. Textured surfaces from winds on all the tops of the musical bumps. Very limited direct obs from steep TL areas, skied mostly BTL where snow quality seemed best. Good skiing down to 1400m through old growth. Evidence of Na activity mid storm on some of the steep lee features on Oboe. Surfaces turning moist on steep East and south facing slopes with solar input.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
