Some smaller size surface hoar on shaded below tree-line north/northeast aspects. Observed between 5600-5900 ft. Didn’t venture above tree line. Cornices large and looming with recent snow and wind events.

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