Ramp Peak

Skied Ramp Peak today. Cold, -15 parking lot and -25 up the valley. Sunny and light-no wind all day. Snow was minimally wind affected and offered deep powder with some sharks to watch for. A couple settlements were noted in low angle alpine terrain. Slab character was variable, with soft storm slab and hard wind slab near the top where things were wind swept.

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