Ended up in the gully south of Fraser chutes while traversing north from Byrant Lake. Light was extermely flat and vis was low. Heard a flairly good whumpf from a convex feature while attempting to gain elevation to avoid cornice+train trap. Snow south of the chutes was characterized by 25-30 cm of powder onto of a wind crush. The chutes them selves were amazing, deep heavy powder. Snow flet more coatal than i have ever seen in the Pass. Too bad the sun never really came out. The storm front moved in at ~2 pm with stronger south winds and more snow.

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Foggy, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
