Wet, heavy snow (very maritime) at Vaux moraines today. The snow seemed to see a lot of sun despite the periodic clouds. No apparent instability on the snow that we were immediately skiing, but saw some sloughing off Macdonald face onto the moraines, as well as a big slough avalanche down one of the chutes. The creeks in these drainages are still exposed- ski with caution!

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

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
