Skied Ogden today! Overall excellent travel to the lake and to the benches. The benches received approx 10-20cm of snow (unlike the apparent 35+ at Louise 🤣). Firm temp and sun crust observed at all elevations on the benches with the 20 cm sitting on top. Skied very well however we did observe some shooting cracks (picture) and a small wind slab failure down to 30cm on a lee loaded slope. The cornices on Ogden are massive.
Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes.
Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
