Great freeze overnight. Very crusty in the morning made for some bootpackjng or ski crampons in steep areas. Good corn skiing on the solars and good power on Nw slopes above 2350m but was pin wheeling on us. Compared to Friday the loose wet cycle was fairly quite a steady nw wind kept things from overheating. Skied up an outlier of watermelon a nice diversion from the Dolamite traverse when stability is good. Helen trail a bit isothermic on the way out but still doable.
