Skied Mt Gordon. Approach trail pretty chewed up & side cutt-ey. Excellent travel across the Wapta, probed consistently @ 275cm. No visible signs of sagging or holes of concern. We traveled as 2 teams of 2. -15 valley bottom at 5am, 4 degrees at 2pm back at the car. St Nich appeared scoured to rock. Snow was surprisingly pleasant, more powder than corn with highly variable wind effect.

Snow conditions were: Hard, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.
