Did a few laps at Bow Summit at treeline. The area was very quiet. The light snow and wind gave the area a good refresh. We did not witness any signs of instability or avalanches.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.


Did a compression test near the parking lot. Compression tests did not yield any results.


Morning was mainly overcast with light snow. Wind from the north west and was calm below treeline and was stronger at and and above treeline. Clouds burned away to a completely clear sky mid afternoon.
