It felt like a return to winter riding today at Clemina. The crust from late March is much thinner and lower down here then what we have seen the last couple days. This mean that at upper elevations the snow felt deep and powdery. We didn’t seen any recent avalanches but did note a couple of wind slabs in the alpine 48-72hrs old. While we felt comfortable in most terrain, we remained cautious of large wind loaded faces where the potential for human triggered avalanches remained. We spent the day playing in rolling alpine terrain and sheltered bowls.

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