Skied the first avy path at paget peak. Deep trail breaking in the trees and approx 20cm of good snow (but slow because of the cold) in the path. We observed no avalanche activity throughout the day. We also had no sluffing while skiing or cracks while breaking the up track. However there is a significant crust approx 20-50 cm down in locations and signs that the upper storm snow is stiffening with the wind, would be cautious on this layer if more snow or wind is received. Ogden also got skied and looked in great shape. Large cornices are looming on Ogden and we did observe a few day old debris from a cornice collapse that ran far.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
