Cold day in the alpine. Snow was crusty and slabby w variable loose pockets. Did not see any avalanche activity nor did we hear whoompf or sign of snowpack instability. All still look solid but will likely change w the expected warm up on Monday 15 onwards. Riding down the pass was poor. Some fun and turns to be had skiing down to the road for the last 1km or so in the trees on good powder.

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