Skied a supported line beside the main paths and had a good ol' time.

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

Snowpack

Did a couple of quick CT's and got moderate results on the surface hoar that sits 2cm above the robust rain crust. Surface hoar crystals well preserved and up to 10 mm in size (See photo) Kicked a few size 1 touchy windslabs off at ridge top but none of them thicker than 30cms.
