Observation Roadside Drainage

Marcus Baranow

Skied the alpine area above the longer roadside drainage feature on Observation from about 2500m in a mix of supportive facets and isolated wind slab. Overall the skiing was ok and it was sunny and warm up high. Another party skied the same area after us but they dropped in from the higher bench area and skied the looker's left shoulder of the drainage where they looked to find better snow than us.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
