A long but great day out on Mount Temple. Pretty much every slide path on the S aspect of Little Temple has slid within the past few days, wet loose slides varying from size 1-2. The fan on Aemmer couloir is pretty rocky, it's rideable but watch out for hidden rocks, the snowpack is very shallow near the bottom. The couloir itself rode great, but lot's of sluff to manage on the decent. It was cloudy all day with light snow showers, which made for very little solar input. The snow in the alpine was still in good shape, but below treeline it was wet and heavy.

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Foggy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
