Did a quick morning lap and noticed small Hoar crystals growing on the surface of the snow. Hopefully the coming wind takes care of that. There's a nice layer of dust out there, but we chose to ride some mellow terrain. We went out yesterday and during our compression test found a sudden planar (CMT) about 60cm's down.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold. We rode: Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
