We took advantage of a mostly sunny day to do a nice tour of the Renshaw. We were lucky enough to get a few ski laps in as well! Light to moderate southerly winds kept us on north facing slopes most of the day, and we were mindful to stay well away from some giant cornices. There was a lot of evidence of some very large cornice failures in recent days, and some loose wet snow sluffing off of the solar aspects towards the end of the day. Smiles and high 5's all around, what a day!
