Chephren L


Had a crack at Chephren L and found an eclectic mix of wind slab, facets and wind slab. Abandoned after going from boilerplate wind slab to thigh deep facets in the space of a meter. Some small shooting cracks observed in wind slab. Lots of hangfire still up there from the last wind event. Ski quality was abysmal. Fan has 20-40cm of coverage, decreasing towards valley bottom. 0/10 would not recommend.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Steep slopes. Riding quality was terrible.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
