Lovat Scout to Bald Hills


nicwinter , Sunday 2nd April, 2023 6:00PM

Skied the Lovat Scout to Bald Hills loop sticking to mellow slopes in treeline. Solar aspects had 2-3cm of new snow on top of a 2cm breakble sun crust. We didnt venture into the alpine but it looked slightly wind affected especially at ridgecrest. Sheltered slopes offered some great skiing and we found it reasonably supportive. Lots of convective flurries throughout the day and the air temperature stayed around -5 for most of the day. No natural avalanche activity observed.

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