Toured up ridge to cutblock peak on well trotted skin track. Skied south aspect of cutblock < 30 degree slope from treeline. Top of cutblock ridge looked decently corniced and likely significant wind loading on northern aspects but uncertain of reactivity. We skied the southern aspect and it felt very stable. 60cm of fresh HS felt bottomless and unable to feel any ski pen to underlying slabs. Would still exercise caution from storm loading. Bring your snorkel and have fun in pow town.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was terrible.

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