Purcells

Did a couple of Rudi's south laps and a Rudi's north, south snow was a bit crusty but still enjoyable, north snow was really nice right down to about 1850m where conditions quickly deteriorated. The snow was not as wind affected as we were expecting given how windy Sunday morning was. The temperature rose very quickly this morning even though it was not sunny.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Heavy, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.

Avalanche

Saw evidence from the Prayer Flags of a recent slide off South Molars. There was a skin track very close to the crown, unsure if there was skier involvement, although we could not see any people in the area. Even though it was cloudy the temps were warming up very fast. Flat light so my photo isn't great.
