Snow in the Brew Hut area was extremely wind scoured/packed. Skiing through Bullet proof ice, rock hard sastrugi (over a foot in size in places), breakable crust, and soft powder all with in 10m of each other. Slope aspect didn’t seem to help matters. Did not see any snow instability issues. Consistent snow cover did not start until 1320m.
