Went up cirque forepeak. No major signs of instabilities. It's very wind battered as the other min pit report suggests. Set a skin track up and boot packed to the top, lots of sharks in the alpine as you can see from the photo. Better skiing was found at treeline and below.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Sunny slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
