Bailed on bell couloir due to cohesive windslab about 20-30cm thick halfway up. Also observed sluffing out of extreme terrain as well as from bell left hand Couloir. Bell Left is not yet filled in enough to get up the rock step without 2 tools. We lapped the slope below the couloir and did not observe any signs of instability there.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.
