Three days spent up at Little Sand Creek - the first couple of days we found good skiing on north facing aspects where the powder was moist and dense but still really fun. On the last day we found good corn snow on south and east facing slopes before the rain started in the late afternoon. We saw evidence of several loose wet avalanches up to size 1.5 on south east facing slide paths beside the access road but no signs of slab avalanches or indications of unstable snow.
Snow conditions were: Wet. Weather conditions were: Wet, Warm, Cloudy. We rode: Steep slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was good.
Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
