Uptrack was very well defined, overall slopes still had some fresh here and there but it was quite well tracked.
Snow conditions were: Hard, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Dense trees, Steep slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was ok.
Compression test failed at the 10th elbow hit on a 23 degree slope in the trees. Additionally the pack further failed at 80cm down at the bottom of the pack in the cohesive looking facets. Visible dark lines in the snowpack were not reactive but some density changes were noted. Everything appears to be bonding reasonably well.
