Skied Bell Couloir at the back at Taylor Lake in very mixed snow conditions. Saw everything from pow to glacier ice today. In general the snow in the feature is hard wind slab, not horrible for skiing but you never knew what your next turn would be like either. Travel up the feature is currently fast thanks to the hard pressed snow. The lower fan and moraines held the best snow, powder and surface facets made for great turns. The summer trail is in excellent shape for this time of year too!

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Deep powder, Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
