Spent a couple days around Kees & Claire hut. Great riding in sheltered terrain on Cowboy Ridge as well as Whirlwind Pk; stability generally felt good. Stiff wind slabs in lee terrain on alpine ridges. Compression test at 2000m SE aspect found the PWL at only 45cm deep. Failed at CTM12 Spotted a size 1.5/2 on the far skiers right of cowboy ridge, same spot that large skier involved slide went last year. No tracks in or out that we could see.
