Toured up to 2000m today. Everything except north facing slopes were spicy. Natural point release avalanches littered the alpine. The two south facing slopes we crossed (quite quickly) produced point release and some small size 1s. Below tree line was still quite icy on densely forested north facing slopes and shaded north facing aspects in the alpine still held good snow.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Heavy, Powder, Wet. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was ok.

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