Fun day on Camels Hump. Seems like the day/night before the wind must have been howling! Although it only formed into soft slabs, their wasn't a spot N/S/W that wasn't wind effected. Seemed like the last of the storm fell as low density snow though, which made the skiing ok! Of note, we observed several storm slab avalanches from the last 24 hrs in shallow, convex slopes and in wind exposed terrain.The snowpack also had a very upside down feeling to it even in sheltered trees we traveled through. Happy new year!

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

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