Little Arethusa Tree Laps
Fairly solid snowpack with 15 cm of fresh powder on top of a dense crust. The crust kept us from contacting any rocks or stumps. No stability issues below treelike.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Foggy, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
15 new cm on top of a firm crust layer. The crust is about 10cm thick and is overtop of another 30-40cm of softer snow. The crust seemed incredibly stable and kept us from hitting any rocks.
Clear to whiteout in minutes.
