We did some exploring into the Mt. Patrick yurt zone today, finding the same 15 cm or so of low density powder as previous days remaining well preserved on the surface by cold temperatures. Since wind hadn't affected the snow at our elevation, our biggest concern was cornices in overhead terrain, knowing that even though we were in the shade those south-facing cornice roots were taking full sun all day. Spidey senses were definitely on high alert when we stepped out to take our photo, followed by a hasty retreat.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Sunny. Riding quality was good.
