Extremely firm conditions on the NE side of the ridge. Solar schmoo starting on the SW side. Pockets of powder, pockets of ice. Very variable.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard. Weather conditions were: Windy, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Dense trees, Convex slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was ok.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.


What little snow was available for transport on Lee slopes was being really picked up and moved away. Spectacular ridge top BS. I suspect not much will be left to transport from W thru S slopes in the next 6-12h.
