Spent Mon - Fri in the South Creek / Overseer area. Generally good snow conditions, no sign of instabilities except for wet loose on steeper solar aspects, especially at lower elevations. Stronger winds on Weds night produced wind crusts on most aspects on Thurs (due to changing wind direction). Solar aspects at treeline had a thick (5cm) sun crust on Thurs PM. Good coverage on the lower FSRs and up high. HS 300cm on glacier at 1900m.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder, Wet, Wind affected. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
