Skied north facing chutes on Anif. Top 15-20cm was faceted powder that lead to loose sluffs on steep slopes. Stayed away from south facing slopes today to avoid wind slabs. Wind scouring on ridge showed both lines were leeward to the most recent outflow winds.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Convex slopes, Steep slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours. Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
