Arethusa Cirque

At the start of the day there was 10cm of powder sitting on 10cm of Styrofoam from the wind/warming early in the week. By lunch it had warmed up to 5 degrees C and the snow was sticky on the way up and down. I would recommend waiting for some new snow before skiing here. The alpine was heavily wind affected.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wet, Wind affected, Powder. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Sunny slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
