Pond Recon

NL Field Team

Decided to check out some pond ice conditions today. We scored about a foot of ice on smaller ponds but could see open water on the bigger bodies such as 10 mile and Bakers. 10cm of new snow made for some great turns on west facing glades and meadows. Still early season conditions.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Foggy, Warm. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
