Tutshi chutes

Yukon

Bit of a surprise to find such nice turns in the upper third of tutshi trees, lower down was the normal jungle. Seems that the early season dump of 40-60cms has done a good job at pinning down all the willows that normally plague the skiing here. There are still willows but for early November it was a very acceptable amount of willows. 60cm’s of snow pretty consistently and it feels like there is a base, not much for wind affect. -1 all day today and pinwheels on the south facing roadside on the drive back. Didn’t nail the skin track, use it at your own discretion!

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Foggy, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees. Riding quality was good.
