Spent Thursday night at Jumbo Pass. We received 10cm of new snow overnight which was fairly well bonded to the moist surface on sun exposed aspects. It skied well while dry but by about 10 am anything sun exposed turned moist and started roller balling. On north aspects there was no noticeable crust below the new snow and the new snow stayed dry. There was some power sluffing on steep north facing terrain on Bastille Peak (see photo).

Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
