Sea to Sky

For being such a cold day, the temperature was very pleasant in the alpine. Saw evidence of very small (0.5) skier triggered slides on steep/convex roles that only slid about 1-2m. No cracking and whumpfing observed at any point in the day. The snow felt stable but we were conservative in our terrain choices. No pits or tests were performed. Some areas of obvious wind loading and scouring.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
