Skied in the commonwealth and tryst area between 1800 - 2400m. Travel was easy below treeline with a decent surface crust at 7:00am. Alpine terrain (E asp) by commonwealth pk had extensive wind affect. The N facing decent to commonwealth cr provided good powder skiing to valley bottom. Skinning on south aspects in late morning (~10:30) was starting to get challenging, with skins icing up and sinking almost to the ground. The tryst lk chutes provided excellent skiing with cool, boot top pow!

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Windy, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.
