Found very soft and 30-40cm deep slough debris over a thick and supportive crust in the Eiffel Couloir today. Skied amazingly. The fans on the approach/exit were mostly windscoured on the west aspect (or thinly covered and hiding sharks) while the east aspect were generally very loaded. Did a bonus lap on one of the more loaded features and did not see any sign of instability. An excellent 27km roundtrip all in all albeit the -23C start.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
