Toured up lesser flute and dropped the backside of encore ridge over to oboe. Riding on all aspects was crusty, easily breakable crust with powder underneath. We dug a pit on oboe and got minimal results. Sorry I don't know technical terms but About 5 taps CT for the first 10cm layer to crack 10 taps for about 30cm 7 taps 60cm And the majority of the snowpack was well consolidated. Avalanches in photos are from yesterday I believe.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
