Great day out on Whymper! Travel up the main avi path was quick and easy going. Cut left across the drainage which saw some interesting facets mixed with supportive mid pack. 2 party members stuck a 6 ft cliff drop with minimal loose dry sluffing on the landing. Riding to the road was 10-30cms fresh on solid layer. Lots of old avi debris made for a few fun jumps. All in all a great day to be in the back country.

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