Skied in the Perry creek area. About a meter less snow than usual this time of year, Hs 95 cm. From top down, 5 cm powder, 15 cm stiff crust from St. Patrick’s Day warmup, 15 cm settled snow, 10 cm of more crusts, then 50 cm of big loose facets. Everything above the facets is pretty strong, but if you broke through to the facets, could be trouble. Whumphing on the flats, down into facets.
