Boulder Delivers!

Sunny skies, dry pow, and no tracks made for a Mega day up on Boulder today. There was around 15 cm of new snow and 60-80 cm of recent snow on top of the most recent melt-freeze crust in the alpine. The bond to the crust was good in the areas we travelled. The recent snow tapered dramatically below treeline. We had good visibility all the way out to Turbo Hill and didn't observe any recent avalanches or signs of instability. There was minor wind effect at ridgetops and amazing riding everywhere else in the alpine. HOWEVER, conditions will change dramatically on Thursday, as freezing levels rise rapidly to nearly 3000 m! Say goodbye to all that nice pow pow and hello to dangerous avalanche conditions that have the potential to create some very large and destructive natural avalanches. 😢 If we were heading back out tomorrow, we would be staying in very low angle terrain, well away from any large slopes or avalanche paths.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
