Toured Surprise Pass today, good well cut skin track all the way basically to Surprise pass Couloir. Skin track up Couloir was pretty sketchy and wind affected. We opted to bootpack, snow on the descent was variable, some soft pockets, but largely ridden out.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
