Skied chutes 4-5-6 at Crowfoot glades today. Pretty epic snow conditions - fairly low density, no wind effect where we were (skied between 1950-2200m). Of particular note, significant sluffing with lots of entrainment. Bonding to prior interface was quite weak in steep terrain. Not super fast, but carried a lot of mass. We ski cut all of our entrances and they easily ran for 100m or more down steep terrain. No real slab properties at the entrances though.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Riding quality was amazing.

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