The views were amazing but the snow was a bit wind affected. Some powder at the bottom of NRC gully but not that greatest quality. Dug a pit. Quite stable it took three large elbow hits for block to propagate 40 cm down. Nothing moved beyond that. Sunny western aspect.

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