Today we went sledding at Seaton Basin. We saw no new avalanches, but visibility into the alpine was poor. At treeline, we found 200 cm of snow on a northeast facing slope. We dug on this slope and were able to produce propagating Extended Column Test (ECT) results 50 cm deep. Moderate southerly winds were transporting snow at ridgecrest and forming new wind slabs.

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