Marchvember in White Pass

Firm surfaces abound in White Pass. Winds from the both the north and south have made soft snow hard to find at the moment. The upside is that travel on skis is fairly quick and easy. TL elevations have up to 60cm of snow. Higher elevation glaciers have up to 150cm. The caveat here is that snow depth is extremely variable, especially in the alpine. No recent avalanches and no indication of weakness in the snow pack.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was ok.
