Wet snow falling all day on Friday. Accumulation appx 10cm by 5pm. Good riding on sheltered North aspects in the trees. Everything else had a significant crust, either wind scoured or sun-crust.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder, Wet. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Stormy, Windy. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Convex slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.
Moderate wind coming from the South. At times quite gusty. Not much snow to transport from the sun-crusty South aspects, but the falling storm snow was blowing around.
