Rae Glacier area
Rae Glacier is surrounded by rocks. It was really windy in the area and many slopes were affected by the wind having a crusty layer. However, we were able to ski in the trees on the side of an avalanche path facing West, east of the canyon. The snow was powdery. Two feet thick. The snow in between the October and November crust was facetted. But still ending up having a good stability on the tapping test.
Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Windy, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was good.
