The skiing was kind of meh but the tour was fantastic today under blue bird skies. Quick travel down and only a handful of rocks exposed on the ski out. Quite a few older tracks in the trees. Felt like 5cm of snow on a sun crust. We heard 4 audible avalanches around 10am when we were nearing Taylor Lake but didn’t get to see them. My assumption was that it was solar as it was a bright sunny morning. There was zero to minimal wind throughout the day.

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


Bluebird until around 1pm then high clouds. Minimal wind all day
