Skied Video Peak today (great) & The Dome Saturday (terrible). Video Peak held powder above 1900m, a little mushy below that. Solar crust from Mar18 is healthy & thick. 60cm down on this SE aspect at 2380m. See photo. It was unreactive to ECT/CT but held small grain facets above & below. Yesterday, the dome was awful. Melt freeze to 1900m & wind hammered garbage all the way above that. Scraped our way down. Hot today, hovering around +2 with a poor overnight freeze.
Snow conditions were: Heavy. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
See photo. Healthy solar crust. No result.
