Little Yoho

Great day on Top Hat. Minimal wind distribution on big slope. Old avalanche debris on skiers left from cornice fall off top hat. Great day. Lots of room for more lines. Save your gas on travel to Rogers Pass and ski Yoho.

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

Snowpack

Minimal wind distribution on most committing terrain on descent. Big cornice development on ridges. Watch for sharks on in the lower pillow line where previous avalanches scrubbed to ground.
