Skied a single lap of Trucker's Delight where we found most of the snow down to 1900m to have some wind effect. I was able to easily ski cut 10cm thick slabs out of isolated convex rolls at low treeline.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Windy, Warm, Cloudy. We rode: Dense trees, Open trees. Riding quality was ok.
