Bourgeau Meadows


Did some mellow riding in Bourgeau Meadows. -10 in the parking lot, up to -5 in the alpine around noon. Freeze thaw conditions on the uptrack. Snow improved greatly at about 2100m with 10cm on top of a thin solar crust. Good riding on North facing aspects. Solar aspects were hammered by the sun and turned into a slushy mess. Bourgeau had noticeable activity on the south face in the alpine, also came across some fresh size 2 wet debris well in to treeline on the ski back to Healy Creek.

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

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
