Rode into hasler today. Nice powder still, especially on the leeward side of the mountains and in trees. Dug a pit in the trees in the aluminum bowl at an elevation of 1517m on a 30 degree northeast facing slope. Facet layer down 130cm was still grainy but seemed to be starting to stick together. Column test resulted in a reaction down 35cm on hard 24. A layer also reacted down 60cm after the aforementioned layer but I didn’t notice it until I went to move the column.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
