South Coast Inland

Powder on high north facing slopes made good skiing. We found a 20-30cm wind slab on the north side of Matier in hand shear tests but non-planar. Lots of loose-wet activity on Anniversary glacier (NE facing), both natural and skier triggered.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wet. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
