First time out at Idaho ridge out on annie lake road. Decided to take advantage of the recently warming temperatures. Snow pack was variable with storm slab prominent at tree line (fist), wind slab in alpine and consistent 40-60cm basal facets. Skiing and skinning quality were low but significant potential with increased snow pack.
Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold. We rode: Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
