Poccaterra ridge

Ben Wards

Best snow of the season at treeline and below. Wind slabs were building on the SE face so we stayed out of the Alpine. A few size 1.5 to 2 loose avalanches from steep terrain off the eastface of Poccaterra mountain during the day and last night.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
