Summited Elgood via an uptrack on its east ridge then skied the southeast aspect until we could drop in the north facing open trees at 2000m. Snow was crusty on the solar aspect (difficult skiing) but decent heavy powder on the north side (fun skiing). Did not notice evidences of significant wind transport or wind slabs. A good day.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. We rode: Dense trees, Open trees, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
