Rode ramp peak and half of quartzite on Tuesday. Great spring riding conditions, turned around on quartzite due to a shallow snow pack in places and warmer conditions than we expected. We saw lots of evidence of point releases on our way out of the valley, but no big slopes slid. Temperature reached 0 degrees in the alpine at around 2pm.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder, Wet. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
