Commonwealth Traverse


We skinned up Commonwealth Ridge and skied the steep trees back to the valley and then continued on with the traverse. There was great conditions in the steep trees. Wind slab from commonwealth saddle down to tree line made for some interesting turns. Once in the trees the quality improved drastically and made for some fun skiing.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Dense trees, Mellow slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
