We skied up following the benches routes on mostly hard slabs. Chimney was filled w snow and easy scramble. No sign of avalanches nor did we see any activity. We skied down the N Glacier. Mixed conditions. Crust, heavier snow w ski penetration of 15-20 cm. We skied the Narao glades in surprising good conditions.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Heavy, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Warm, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was ok.
