Engadine Burn

Rode engadine burn starting around 10am. Approximately 1cm snow accumulation at the trailhead, storm snow accumulation was approx 10cm at the flat bench before the steeper burn upper slope. Made about 50m elevation gain up into the steeper trees and had isolated cracking along the skin track, appeared to be about 15cm of storm snow cracking on top of the sun crust layer. Snowing heavily with graupel above 2100m. Skiing down was a mixture of surprisingly nice sections of soft snow where the crust wasn't as established, lower slopes were cruddy and crusty.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy, Windy. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
