Black Prince traverse to Hero's Knob

steven.a.kovalenko

Traversed from Black Prince to Hero's Knob approach drainage via the steep connecting alpine slope, then continued over to Hero's main descent. Strong alpine winds showed up just after noon. BP to Hero descent had notable wind effect, soft surface slab starting to form. Not particularly reactive yet when we skied it before noon. Very similar to the Hero's descent except steeper, narrower, less skier traffic.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy, Windy, Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
