Rode the Onion today. Widespread wind effect in any open terrain. Saw several size 1-2 wind slab avalanches on a variety of aspects due to recent shifting winds. We suspect these ran in the previous 12-36 hours. Managed to find lots of soft snow in sheltered meadows. Most places in the alpine heavily wind affected with thick hard drifts and or sastrugi.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy, Sunny. We rode: Open trees. Riding quality was good.
