25cm powder on chunky crust most of the way up. Top snow slipping fairly easily off crust but not super consolidated into slabs, just big wet chunks in places. Made it back before significant warming, was lucky clouds kept the sun at bay most of the morning. Rode Rogers run down, some surprisingly good snow to be found in isolated shady areas in the trees.

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Sunny, Warm. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
