Up log cabin and along the halcyon ridge to Fraser. Fog bank lingering over Fraser turned us around and made good use of our whiteout navigation skills. Log cabin was sunny all day. Descended log cabin SE ridge at noon and corn cycle was good the whole way to the road from 1600m above that cold snow is still around. Many high alpine north slopes still holding cold snow. Intermittent light south winds but mostly calm.

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Wet. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
