Felt some older wind slabs underfoot at cats in treeline elevation. No whumph or cracks. Skiing cats was great and no socks on way back to the hill was great. Loose sluff running in steeper terrain with no slabs and not gaining mass. Snow started at 9am and was still snowing when we left, 15cm so far. Wind was light and from the east locally (downhill at Cats). Poor visibility so no avalanchea seen.

Snow conditions were: Powder. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.
