Great riding in Chappell today. Still on the hunt for the surface hoar... We found it down 120cm giving hard results. Upper pack had an interface at the storm snow layer down 65cm also giving hard results. Good visibility today, no avalanches observed. Lots of wind texture to the snow in open areas especially at ridgelines, with cornices building.
Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
