Skiied the dolomite peak circuit. Run down to Kathryn lake was fast with 4cm of fluffy fresh snow on a supportive (wind?) crust. Rest of the circuit was a great day out with excellent weather, no wind and sun all day. One whumpf observed on the way up to the puzzel dolomite col (pin location) and a couple small sluffs observed high up on the south east aspect of Dolomite. No other avalanche activity. Snuck in a run on OXO baking in the sun, still a bit sharkey, but great fun.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
