Lots of wind affect. Fast bootpack travel up the slope. Skied ok. No pow, and thankfully not icy death, just wind hammered. North facing moraines before the couloir were best skiing of the day with nice ankle deep creamy pow, but entirely too far to go to ski this feature alone. No signs of instabilities on the way up. Bit of a reactive wind skin 5cm thick or less at the top of the line. Active swirling winds all day blowing around the remnants of pow.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
