Went up to ski south slopes of Black Tusk. Some surface hoar was noted in the morning from the cold temperatures but it's growth was stunted due to solar effect. No major avalanche problems noted on the way up. On S aspects in the alpine there was significant wind scouring. Skiing was good once you made it out of the wind scoured areas.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Windy, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Sunny slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.
