Didn’t even make it to the parking lot in an SUV. Snow was silly deep, very slow travel and skiing because of which. Natural avalanches observed across the highway and in the Bow Summit alpine bowl

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours. Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
