Rode Purple Bowl after ascending from the Larch chair, changing snow conditions on the ascent with pockets of soft snow and some areas with crust but overall fairly wind affected and hard as you climb higher. Snow in the bowl was mostly hard with a few cms of soft snow on top, some pockets of softer snow near the top and softer as you got into the vegetation in the bottom.
Snow conditions were: Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
