We started the morning under bluebird skies at Belle and found anywhere from 5-20cm lower density snow over a well-settled snowpack providing easy travel conditions. In a test profile in sheltered terrain at 1830m we found no persistent weak layers and no results in snowpack testing. Gusty west winds began to pick up around noon and transport snow in exposed alpine areas.

Snow conditions were: Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.
