Solo'd up to the col between Niblock and Whyte this morning. Great skiing from just below the col all the way to 2000m when staying on shaded slopes. Access is excellent right now, there is a firm, well set uptrack in the creek from the old 1A sign, several options through the moraines and an easy uptrack on the glacier ending in a short bootpack to the ridge top. Glacier toe has some bare patches but currently no open holes. No wind with a mix of sun and clouds. Some old debris out of rocky unskiable solar terrain looker's left when you exit the trees.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
