Yukon Field Team
New snow was falling over a supportive crust today in the low elevation trees skiing at Marinka’s Hill. Warmth at the end of the last storm left a thick crust up to 1200m but with 10cm already on top, ski conditions were improving. This capping crust and a low forecasted hazard at treeline meant we felt comfortable skiing steep, convex terrain. We enjoyed dust on crust conditions and moving through the big timber on the south end of the pass.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Convex slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
