Skied Bell couloir, day started cloudy and calm, then started snowing 3cm/hr for 2.5 hrs ish - deposited about 10cm at 2500m in total (ish). Temp was couple degrees below freezing the whole day. Sun came out around 2pm, warmed things up quick. Snow felt stable except for new snow which was slugging off extreme terrain and entraining heavy and substantial skiffs on way down, made for a good show, but did not trigger anything on the fans. Stayed away from big south facing slope though when the sun came out. Overall sweet day out - great spring skiing !
