Went out to Million Dollar Couloir today. On northly aspects it felt like a weird, inconsistent snowpack was forming. Small but very cohesive slabs, and sluffing, from the cold dry snow being deposited on the Northerly slopes by the wind change. Saw evidence of a size 1.5 slab that looked fresh, just down and 50m to the east of MDC, and on the same n aspect.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours. Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
