AST2 students report: Storm snow was denser than anticipated. No cracking/settlements/whoomphing. No natural avalanches. No reactivity while skiing up to 35degrees. Pleasant day as long as you're out of the wind. View of ridge tops was limited, but we did not observe any snow being moved by winds. North winds started around 3pm - potential for reverse loading if those winds move snow overnight.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.
