Naturals heard ripping throughout Valley today, no vis- yesterday we had a window of vis and saw several crowns from recent avalanches on Iron curtain, tree triangle, blue boy- all seemed to be about 50cm down (as observed from across the valley). You could see the storm slab forming today, cracking in chunks underfoot breaking trail. Dumping. Rimed snow falling for a good chunk of the afternoon.
Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy, Windy. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was amazing.
