Snow was good! Lots of options and a few different party’s out there today sticking to the trees and some pillows. 

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

Snowpack

We dug around and found that a storm slab was active. It wasn’t breaking very clean and had no propagation. We saw it on CT 6, after that we did a ECT and it showed the same results with no propagation.

Weather

Snowing on and off from S1-S3, it was lightly filling in tracks the whole day.

Avalanche

Lots of activity off the crowfoot mountain wall. We could hear larger sized slides somewhere in the glacier bowls but due to visibility we couldn’t see them.
