Snow conditions were: Powder. We rode: Alpine slopes, Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.


Slab release while skinning up Planetary Glades, 50m past another skin track slide, which appeared to be from previous day. Low consequence and no skier involvement, but was enough to turn us around. Congruent with many other observations out there right now. Had some great skiing in different zones, the main contributing factors we observed were elevation (treeline) and slope angle (35°+).
