Moderate sluffing in steep open trees but no evidence of any recent avalanche activity. No whumphing or shooting cracks observed. However conservative terrain choices were made due to results on two compression tests on SE aspect at 2050m.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Foggy, Cloudy. We rode: Steep slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
