Had a great quick little lap up to approx. 1860m on NRC. Plenty of thick powder out there, and saw 2 or 3 other parties out there as well. Rode moderate to low angled terrain, saw moderate sloughing, and one mini storm slab approx 10 cm deep on/over a convexity (photo).

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm. We rode: Mellow slopes, Convex slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
