Dug a quick pit on a NE facing slope at approx 1250M in the trees Probed 170cm Found a crusty facet layer at 80cm about 6” thick with and another similar one right near the bottom. Temp was -10 (ish) and overcast, slight wind off and on all day. Nice base setting up! Sign of older avalanches all aspects. Riders Beware! pesky stumps lurking

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Windy, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
