Original objective was to ski a S avi path / couloir across from Bell. The plan changed due lack of direct solar input as we got to Taylor lake and thereafter. Punched in a track towards Bell N couloir and kept going towards Consolation pass, but still no sun (and a bit of wind) made things really miserable, although the snow conditions were great. Only significant obs was a loose dry coming down a steep couloir to the climber's right of Bell N couloir that went size 2, No cracking and surprisingly we didn't encounter any wind slab in the alpine either.
Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold. We rode: Alpine slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
