Kootenay Boundary

10-20cm of wind-transported snow offered good turns on the East aspect of East Peak. Very stiff melt-freeze crust was found underneath. Released a small sluff (0.5) of the wind-transported snow. No shooting cracks or whoomphs throughout the day. No significant warming, just some wind on the top of the ridge. A few sledders were poaching this zone (inside the Big White Mountain Ecological Reserve). Hopefully this doesn't become common; abundance of other places for sleds to go in this region.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
