Started cold, reached the sun just below Katherine Lake and it warmed up noticeably. No instabilities noted on our trip but we saw debris from an avalanche triggered by a large cornice collapse east of Cirque Peak that slid over some ski tracks (background of 2nd photo). We got out of the sun and into the trees above Mosquito Creek around 11 and although the sun was strong, the snow hadn't started transforming yet.
Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes.
