It is April right?!?! We keep pinching ourselves because the riding is really good right now! We saw no signs of instability, apart from a few pinwheels from low elevation sunny spots. A few size 1 dry loose avalanches when the sun first came out, but no slabs. 25 cm of snow in this area since Tuesday over a supportive rain crust from last week. We skied steep north facing slopes away from the sun at treeline and had great riding. Slopes in the sun were getting quite heavy.

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Warm. We rode: Open trees, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
