Black Prince


Skied South face of Black Prince, snow was good but temperatures warmed up higher and faster then expected. Snow pack was stable in the glades where we skied. Due to the increase in temperatures we tried to stay away from any convexities. At our transition point we watched a point release on the East face seen in the picture. Ran out probably 200-300m and seemed fairly large

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Powder, Wet. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.

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


Watched a point release on the East aspect of Mnt. Black Prince. Likely due to the rapid increase in temperature. Possibly wet snow
