Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.


Hand shear showed a resistant but planar break down 50cm. Storm snow was bonding well but we stuck with our plan and skied 30deg slopes and saw no sign of instability other than point releases on extreme terrain with a westerly aspect.
