Dog Leg


Delightfully pleasant day in the dog leg. Snow was slightly wind effect but improved with being in the sun and still made for good turns. Another party triggered a small wind slab in a steep shallow area at the very top of the dog leg. Snow was less wind effected on the south and north aspects of Hero's Knob yesterday. The snow stayed dry on East and NE aspects but was wet by the road in open areas. Minor sluffing was observed from the sun on the SE aspect of Hero's Knob below cliffs.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.
