Skied stem and south shoulder chute. Both were skied out by the time we left and it was very busy. Over 6 groups skiing the 2 couloirs. They were both pretty filled in, a couple obvious rocky spots nothing much though. Skiing was better than expected but still not great. It was fairly windy at the top of south shoulder chute and there was some wind affected snow. Overall the snow felt stable and safe and it was a good day out.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy, Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
