Rode Phantom Couloir on Mt Ogden today. Some wind effect was observed on the west side of the couloir so we stuck to the east on the up and down. Bootpacked up to ~2600m where the rocks started to be visible across the slope, and skied down from there. Skiing inside the couloir itself was a bit varied but generally skied well. Fan in particular was crusty. The alpine slope from the bench down had fantastic powder ski conditions. Lots of parties out in the area so getting fairly tracked out.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
