The road into tally ho is very bumpy. Once we got into the zone there was lots of good riding to be had. It was about 35cm ski pen breaking trail in trees up to tally ho. We did a hasty pit (@ 1350m) and had SP down 20cm while cutting. It broke below a 5cm thick crust, which was sitting on sugary facets. We didn’t observe shooting cracks or any new avalanches while in the zone. We stuck to mellow slopes and enjoyed some good turns down tally ho. Triggered some isolated wind slabs <5cm around 1500m while coming down. Temps were up to -4. Moderate winds from south at the top. On the return sled we observed some new avalanches on SE slopes initiated with loose avalanches off steep slopes which triggered some slabs down lower. Up to size 1.5.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Heavy, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
