Upper evening ridge was ok until about 1900m. There was a small wind blown crust that was fine to ski though, and underneath was some good snow. Snowpack felt comfortable. Under 1900m though it quickly turned into wet heavy powder which was a little taxing on the legs. All throughout the uptrack though there was clear evidence of some significant pin wheeling from snow falling from trees.
