Howling at Harrison

90 cm of snow on the ground meant for terrible travel conditions. We punched to ground repeatedly on our sleds and skis. Climbed to 2300 m and dug a pit where we found the November weak layer alive and well! It failed in out tests 50 cm deep so we carefully descended to our snowmobiles. The ice looked good from far though!

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Windy. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was terrible.
