In the ridge 2000/ 2001 area we skiied a north facing slope in the upper treeline. The first lap was conservative since we noticed shooting cracks on the ridge line. Amazing pow. On the 2nd lap (admittedly) i pushed the limits and jumped through a tree island into a steeper convex slope. The feature propergated 25m wide 80 meters long and 40cm deeps. Luckily enough i stayed on the surface and rode it out. This is a great tester slope for large alpine feature which are likley also reactive to skier triggers.
Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Windy, Cloudy. We rode: Convex slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
