Rode the Main chute on the East aspect of pulpit. Storm sluffing kept the centre a little more firm but the edges and trees held nice soft snow. ECT revealed a non-propagating layer of storm snow that fractured on the first hit from the elbow approx 15cm down - interface was broken and not planar. No other significant results

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold. We rode: Steep slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
