Chilly day (-15 with Light to Moderate NE winds) in Hasler with poor visibility, riding quality was best in the trees where the snow was unaffected by the wind. Reverse loading was taking place and becoming reactive to sled triggering in immediate lee features. Several large glide cracks were also observed and one older slide size 2.5 on a NE aspect.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Foggy, Windy. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.
