Icefields

Skied the slide paths off mushroom peak. HS was 80 at 2000m, with a mix of basal facets, a temperature crust (up to 2000m on ESE aspects), and surface facets. Skiing was relatively unsupported, especially at lower elevations. However, there were some good turns to be had with a good attitude! Evidence of old avalanche debris was observed in two of the most northern slide paths. Weather was warm (hovering around -5) with moderate SW winds moving snow in the ALP.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
