Wind is affecting

We saw a small avalanche (10m x 30m). Seems to have been created by a corniche that had released. Lots of wind loading. Snow conditions are extremely wind affected at higher altitude. We tried to find good snow in the chutes but the snow is just rock solid... Some descent snow in the trees and lower altitude.

Snow conditions were: Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy, Sunny. We avoided: Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
