We had some of the touchiest conditions of the season today. Skiing any steeper section of slope initiated a wet slide that would gain speed and more snow, running up to size 2. We skied West Ymir. We saw one larger natural avalanche (size 2) and multiple skier-triggered avalanches with surprisingly large debris.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Heavy, Wet. Weather conditions were: Foggy, Stormy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
