We climbed to a safe bench between 1350 and 1400 m to see what the northerly winds had done in the last day or two. Wind effect was noticeable above ~1100m and by our high point conditions were firm, so we retreated to lower elevations. Still some soft snow in sheltered areas below 1100m.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy, Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
