Website format seems poor, sorry for lack of spaces. Skinned up from 500m to 900m on the main logging road before entering an old growth forest. Put in a skin track to 1280 m before digging a pit then completing our tour up to 1350m. Skied down through beautiful open and forested slopes staying away from convex rolls. Finished on a cut block and joined back at the road around 800 m of elevation. There was 20-30 cm of fresh light snow. No signs of natural avalanches noted. Some wind affected areas at lower elevation.
