Toured south York up and over in to lynx basin. Lots of wind effect on all aspects, from bullet proof to soft slabs. Still some powder hiding in sheltered areas. South facing slopes in lynx had several size 1 slides (maybe one or two were up to a size 2) from a day or two ago (difficult to tell with the wind effect) ... all seemed to start between 1900 and 2000m, and ran farther than expected given the terrain. Had a few whumphs and some cracking in these wind affected areas.

Snow conditions were: Hard, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Windy. We rode: Open trees, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
