Lots of windloading and new windslabs in the alpine and at treeline. At treeline and below, powder didn’t felt right—expect to see windloading and rapidly transforming (into windslabs) snow even below treeline.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold. We rode: Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was ok.
