Great tree skiing between Revy and Rogers pass today. 20cm of nice supportive powder over the crust. No sluffing even on steeper features and no signs of instability yet. Drainage is mainly south and SW facing. Snow coverage decent at treeline and above but still thin below 1900m (surprise!!!). Just enough to ski well and forget about the deadfall, and then get a reminder resonating through your bones when you land on a stomp or a log. Creeks are still exposed and easily accessible for drinking, sub-alpine fishing or cold dips. Always carry a towel! We saw another party and many woohoos and weeeeees were heard. Hi! 👋
20cm hst over 2cm crust. Soft slab gaining strength in wind exposed areas and above treeline or at ridge top. 4F facets below crust.
