Lunchbox Gullies, Tablelands

Andrew Stokes

Overall bony conditions in the Lunchbox Gullies (east aspect). The one we skied looked to be the most filled in but still had some rock. Snow was wind buffed hard pack from easterly winds, but plenty edge-able and very stable. Runout also smooth snow, very little sastrugi formed. Lots of wind affect in the general area. Gullies and couloirs filling in but could use more snow. Wind picked up from the west when we were leaving and it looked like east facing slopes were starting to load up again. New snow on top of the current wind buffed surface will be suspect.

Snow conditions were: Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
