No signs of instability in the terrain we travelled other than surface sluffing in steep terrain. We stayed below tree line expecting the alpine to be wind affected, skiing large openings and avalanche paths. -20 degree temps, low humidity and 3 weeks of surface facetting topped by 20 cm of recent blower made for some deep dry cold smoke.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold. We rode: Mellow slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
