Tryst Lake Chutes


We went for the Tryst Lake Chutes through the uptrack that goes up the shoulder. Avoided a longer exposure skinning up from the avalanche runoff coming off Tent Ridge, but when skiing out, didn't notice any sign of avy activity. It was snowing pretty hard and all tracks from previous days were not visible by the time we skied down. We stuck to the trees on the shoulder, before the first chutes. There was a good 30 cm of fresh snow that seemed well supported. Being on a polar aspect, we didn't really feel the sun crust from earlier in March underneath. We did feel it as we were skinning up on other aspects, around 30-40 cm under more recent snow, and heading out when reaching around 2000 m elevation. Ski out was still enjoyable!

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wet. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

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