Very similar to the field team's obs from Saturday: some good powder in sheltered areas near valley bottom, with a variety of dust on wind slab and sastrugi higher up. Beautiful sunny day with a light north wind and an inversion. Needle shaped surface hoar was evident up to 1300m where we turned around.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
