Had fun skiing in the storm and popping out small slabs on steeper terrain and convexities. Still early season hazards and generally thin. HST around 70cms at 2000m. 15cm storm snow sits on a thin melt freeze crust; Below is another dry 15cms on a 5cm crust; and 30 cms of facets with another 5cm crust close to ground.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
