Today we sledded and skied the Silvertip near the Salmon Glacier. Strong outflow winds from the NE were transporting snow and rapidly building wind slabs on lee features in the alpine. In the morning we found some preserved powder on shady, sheltered aspects in the alpine which made for great skiing. These slopes were beginning to be wind affected though. We saw a few older wind slab and loose wet avalanches, but no new.

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