Today we ventured North in search of clear skies and and dreamy turns. We toured up Mt McCreight in the Prince of Wales Range. The new snow was variably in depth, anywhere from 10-50cms, with lots of evidence of wind effect at higher elevations. Skiing quality was very good and we noted 2 size 1 slab avalanches on South aspects. The top 10cms was beginning to moisten as the day progressed on solar aspects. It was a treat to have some pow turns in the sun, awesome day!

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Convex slopes, Dense trees, Open trees, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
