Arrowsmith main gully

Ben Godwin

Tried arrowsmith main gully. Snow was rock hard and generally icy. Did 2 hand sheers, first one no result. Second, with much effort and an ice axe a 15 cm thick windslab was excavated, but it was well bonded. Snow was just barely starting to warm at 2 pm.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Sunny, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. Riding quality was terrible.
