Woke up early and headed up to ski Gordon. Refreeze resulted in a 10cm thick crust made for quick travel. Saw lots of Sz 2-3 slabs from the recent warm up. Dug a pit at TL, N aspect and got CTM20 (SP) down 74cm on Facets overlying the Feb 3rd MFC. Snowpack is definitely hardening up but still a bit spooky. Probed 170-205cm on the glacier. Good skiing an even some powder found above 2600m, skied some nice corn snow below Bow hut as well. We exited out the canyon just as the crust was breaking down. Took a photo of Collie for anyone heading that way.
