Arathusa Cirque

Zoe Ryan

Wind affected snow tree line and alpine. Thin melt freeze crust on solar aspects from yesterday’s sun and warmth. Up to 20cm of new windslab in alpine lees. In some places, this is overlying surface hoar formed on Thursday night and 5-10cm of unconsolidated low density snow from last storm. Ski quality was better on polar aspects with no sun crust.

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