Went up little temple today. Very firm base under 3-5 centimeters of old dust. Dust was a bit heavy from the wind, but it rode okay. No ski penetration beyond the dust Boot penetration was about ankle deep. Snow at the col was thin and punchy. Scree walk to the summit. No signs of avalanche activity during the day, but there were some old (small releases) on the solar aspects across paradise valley. Some of the small coloirs on temple flushed some time ago. Snow was fast on the way out of the valley.

Snow conditions were: Crusty. Weather conditions were: Sunny. Riding quality was ok.
