Skied the trees before the stadium glacier, overall snow quality was good, on the heavy side and very deep! No signs of instability, but lots of wind in the alpine and significant wind loading on lee slopes so we stayed away from those and kept to the trees. Freezing level was high, around 1000m which has helped bond the snowpack at the price of mediocre snow quality.

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
