Vancouver Island

Decent day out on Becher. Fresh snow had definitely gotten heavier since Saturday. Another fresh 15-20cm on top. No signs of instability, but we were super conservative with terrain. Did not summit - did not want to venture onto the open alpine slopes. The few small, steep, isolated terrain features we skied produced deep sluff. Skins were icing up and snow was really sticky until we hit 1000m - was more noticeable on the way out after it warmed up more.
about 75cm of fresh before a thin crust
