Quick travel on firm surface today up Video Peak. Below 1550m the most recent precip must have fell as rain (near zero pen). As you ascend it transitions from a dusting to deeper, high density snow, to medium/light powder. Riding down from summit to 2200m was really fun. Down to 2000m still quite smooth and grippy. Below 1900m is mix of mashed potatoes, cream cheese, and cement (I don't have an edible analogy for this one). Maybe 1-2hr of bright sun today, but still some solar input based on how our faces feel. +1C on ascent (~1900m) and -3C w/wind (from the south) up top (2500m). Small slough evidence on steep, solar aspects. A handful of groups out near video, a few digging pits and an AST group. Photo of Cheops for reference.

Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Warm. Riding quality was good.
