Excellent reset on White Queen today with no traffic at all! Very good snow quality with about 45cm ski pen. Top 200m of the run the crust was prevelant but not noticeable when skiing. The last 300m the temperature/sun crust was more noticeable but the snow was so deep it didn't matter. Lots of sluffing on steeper terrain features but the storm slab was not consolidated, something to take note of if the sun comes out tomorrow. 240cm HS.

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

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


Puking snow all day. Covered the skin track on each run 🙂 Up to 10cms within 5 hours.
