Tryst chutes

Cool morning at tryst chutes. Upon breaking trail on east aspect, storm snow was sliding on presumably an old sun crust on steep convex rolls. We heard a few natural avalanches while breaking trail but did not witness any. With ski cutting some loose dry sluffing occurred at the steeper entrances, running halfway to the lake or so. Evidence of possibly a crown line on a SE aspect near super slope after our exit to commonwealth creek, but might have been a wind lip. Also on the drive down noticed a very large crown line in the alpine on the goat range on a NE aspect.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Sunny, Windy. We rode: Steep slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes.
