Black prince trees
Crusty and heavy snow beside the skin track on the way up (beside the gully) at 11 AM. Skin track was very icy as you got higher - we gave up going any higher before we broke treeline. Skiing down at 1230 was surprisingly good snow in shaded areas where the sun hasn’t hit yet. -5 degrees at the parking lot in the morning at 1030 and +2 when we left at around 2:00.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wet, Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Dense trees, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
