Toured up Helen Creek to the ridge where we skied down to Katherine Lake. Returned via Helen Creek. Skiing was good, snow is good in the alpine and better in the trees. Did a quick pit on a similar slope to our run. No result on a CT.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Snowpack

CT no result. With the shovel I got a planar release on a layer at 45 cms. It was hard to get this to pop. 26 degree slope, NE facing.
