Nice day with some decent snow and sunshine. Overnights winds moved snow around quite and bit at all elevations. Morning winds in the access valley were sustained moderate and quite cool at -9. Sun was out most of the day but cloud cover came in heavy at 1400hrs. And yet again we have another layer of surface hoar growing proud and strong at all elevations in any area protected from the winds. No signs of instability noted but we kept it pretty mellow due to group skill. Lots of 🌈 riders (slope testers) out there pushing some steep slopes without consequence.
Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy, Warm, Sunny. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
