Spent three days in Lizzie Creek area. Found good snow treeline and below, alpine was wind blasted on all aspects. Was able to ski just after bypass trail but there is virtually no coverage until 800m elevation.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Stormy. 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.


Rider triggered size 1.5 on convex roll at treeline. Slab released when rider entered feature but the slope quickly levelled off and the the rider was able to stay on top with no injuries. Slope was cross loaded by wind.
