Didn't notice a ton of wind affect. Storm snow seems rather incohesive and unreactive but sloughed easily off anything with a sun crust, which seems to be all aspects other than due north. Great powder skiing for April

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Deep powder, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Foggy, Stormy, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
