10 Mile Trees

Shooting cracks on the skin up, found a nice small cornice that validated a decision to stay out of the chutes and stayed in the trees. Jumping on the cornice, the new snow (30 cm +-) sitting on the rain crust (most recent warm spell) broke off, didn't seem to propagate to much after falling, but we kept it simple (photo attached).
Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Sunny. We rode: Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
