Great day out bouncing around on the snowpack with the clear skies we got to observe a large amount of the area 24-48hr old avalanches were observed in steep rocky terrain on NE Asp from the recent storm areas now have roughly 50cm HST on the March crust. After a few sled cuts on small test slopes with no slabs releasing we decided to explore more terrain while avoiding areas around large Lee slopes on rocky ridges. Day stayed cool today with a high of -2 and light to moderate winds from the NE with light snow transport at ridge tops.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.

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