Top hat left skied okay, but is starting to get a bit of wind affect making the skiing feel a bit upside down in the upper half of the run. We Skied from the summit of Carnarvon down the NE face. This was not in good conditions and is not recommended at this time. After skiing in the are the previous 2 days, and decided the conditions felt good to try it. We found variable windslabs which took great care and caution to avoid. We did not trigger any avalanches, but a Na windslab had occurred in the lower part of the face sometime last night (see avalanche tab).

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.

Avalanche
