What a day in Allen Ck. 20-30cm of fresh snow with light-moderate winds made for great riding. Continued precip in the morning and then sun in the afternoon. Dug a couple holes 1920/1970m trying to find the surface hoar and it is there! Looks like a layer down 65cm giving moderate test results and another down 110cm with hard results in compressions tests. In the areas we were in seemed liked they are less reactive than reported a few days ago.
Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy, Windy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
