Found a F+ crust on all the Bonney Moraines, except at the top of the descent line from the top moraine. Didn't ski it and carried on up to Greens Glacier. Crust was still present to at least 2400m, though it got softer and patchier. Didn't need a puffy for lunch stop at around 2600m and when started to ski the snow had stuck to my bases. Good skiing down all the way to the bottom of the line. Sticky snow on the ski out.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
