Fresh snow at the parking lot, but only a few cms so we thought we would give it a go. The trail in was well travelled and easy to follow. There was closer to 10cm of new snow in the area of the headwall, and this new snow was sitting on a strong crust. After watching a loose dry avalanche come down Buddha Nature, and several large spindrifts in other locations, we decided to bail.

Snow conditions were: Hard, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes.
