Old avalanches from the last storm cycle were observed up to size 2.5 with crowns up to 80cms with obvious step downs in the storm layers on north to east aspect The deeper step downs I’d expect would be on the recent rain crust/facets/surface hoar No instability was observed but evidence of settlement (cracks around tree wells etc) was seen.

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