Dense snowpack in tent ridge NE bowl today. Firm temperature crust at TL made for some tricky uptracking on steeper slopes. Measured close to 300HS in some spots and then exposed rocks nearby in places. Extremely variable HS. Soft surface snow in ALP made for good turns once you were a few turns beneath the ridge. No sign of surface windslab here. Easterly winds today blew all the loose snow to marvel lake. Temperature stayed well below zero all day in ALP, even in the sun, so snow stayed dry. Good coverage BTL. Snowpack is solid all the way back to the vehicle because of the cold temps.
