MC wind hammered


Hero area had extensive wind effect above tree line with areas of hard slab at ridge top and touchy windslabs propagating easily on supportive sun crust in specific areas. Strong gusting winds continued through the day Thursday with a westerly flow but swirling from various directions at ridge top around 2400m. Breakable sun crust at lower elevations and plus 6 at the road in the afternoon. Poor ski quality. Cornices are well developed with evidence of a couple large failures during the last storm.
