Just a great day to grind up ol Sugarbowl. Pretty dam cold, which led to to us trying to find steep slopes to actually get any turns in to keep our speed up on the way down. Bluebird day made for some nice views but that N aspect was not the right call for the day! No signs of recent avalanches, tough going on skin track up due to recent snowfall being full of facets. A bit of wind affect in spots around treeline. All in all, a nice day, but terrible skiing.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Dense trees, Open trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was terrible.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
