Highwood Pass, Storm South Cirques

It's October, it's Highwood Pass, everyone thinks the skiing is amazing but it's because they didn't ski all summer. 30-50cm of snow over ground. Crust on solar aspects (on some micro features found 2 layers, one on ground, one just above it). Didn't see any slab formation but the deep powder people reported after the last storm has condensed. Lots of rocks to hit and lots of people skiing the more common areas.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was ok.
