Snow conditions were: Heavy, Wet. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Sunny slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was ok.

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


We did a column test at the pop of avalanche crest and struggled to find the SH layer. Likely flattened from wind. Setting off the slide lower down confirms that the layer is however-definitely present.
