ECTN16 ~35cm RP: fractures below compression and was resistant planar, it was not a full propagation across the column. ECTP24 54cm SP: sudden planar - propagated across the full extended column and released block. Storm slab sitting on a harder crust layer. Only dug to ~1m so I was mainly looking for the storm slab and cannot comment on potential older weak layers. We enjoyed mellow slopes back to the parking lot. The powder was deep and got a little heavy lower down. Lots of people out skiing. Additionally, chains are mandatory as per usual!

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Heavy, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
