Glacier National Park

Spent the day up in the Lookout Couloirs - Ravens area. Moderate to hard trailbreaking with 35-40cm ski penetration. Skied the westmost two NW facing Lookout Couloirs. A ski cut at the top of the first one produced a 30cm deep x 7m wide SZ 1.5-2 slough that ran 125m. A fridge size cornice control in the second couloir only produced a slough. The feature held 40-50cm ski penetration the whole way. We then headed back up to a wide shot in the middle of the Ravens and ski cut a 30cm deep x 10m wide SZ 2 slough that ran 200m+. The word of the day was slough management! We did not observe any other sign of instability. This was not our deepest but likely our best ski quality day at the pass this season. The snow was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
