The biggest concern for us was the wind slabs at the top of this ridge we were able to find a low angle conservative route to avoid the wind slabs once past them we dug a pit to asses the layers below. There was a melt freeze crust down 45cm but was not reactive in our tests. We decided we could ski the steep lines below after our thorough assessment of the snowpack. Conditions will rise in danger with the incoming storm bringing more wind and precipitation.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.
