Pleasant skiing on supportive crust

Tent Ridge K'Country

Jorg Wilz

Skied a lap on the regular Tent Ridge NE face. -4C at the parking lot at 6.30 and about two cm of fluffy overnight snow, which prevented a better refreeze. The day turned out to be cloudier and cooler than anticipated so the crust remained supportive until we left around noon. Skiing was pleasant on a supportive but soft crust with the 2- 5 cm of moist new snow. The snowpack below the crust appears relatively firm but well saturated where I was checking just below ridge line!
