Skied off north face of Zoa sub peek, skinned back up and headed home Snow was heavy like mash potatoes, until 1600m where high winds had ruined any hope for good skiing Winds blowing from most directions Heavy snow started around 1pm snowing s3ish and winds had died down New storm slab will likely be resting on wind slabs from last day or two at higher elevation based on what we saw today Sorry no photos due to a disappointment in quality of skiing Stayed in relatively simple terrain and saw no evidence of recent avalanches. Experienced lots of cracking in fresh snow and in small windslabs, no whoompfing

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Heavy, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Open trees. Riding quality was terrible.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
