Cheam Peak

South Coast Inland

ejdyck , Sunday 28th March, 2021 3:20PM

Warm weather and sun this past week has created thick breakable crust (10cm) making ski travel very interesting. Widespread pinwheeling from steep west aspects on Lady Peak, and some avalanche debris to size 2 from south facing rocky terrain. Breaking through crust on wind affected terrain, the top couple cm just sluffed off. Very limited visibility. Ski crampons were needed!

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Heavy, Wet. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Foggy, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was terrible.
