5cm of new snow in the trees at 1400-1700m elevation on S aspects. 10-15cm of cold snow above 1700m on the runs off the summit and sub-summit. Great skiing! Winds picked up in the afternoon and we observed shooting cracks while skinning back up the summit on NE aspects, steeper parts released small ~5-10cm deep pocket slabs on the same aspect with no propagation. Graupel accumulating on south facing aspects throughout the day.
Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Windy. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
