Very warm on chief Pascal but very good quality snow. Tracks from feb1 were almost completely buried. Some whoomphing at the ridge top and in the cutblocks down low. Skiing off the north side of the ridge was great. Ever so slightly wind-pressed at the top and then better as soon as you dropped off the ridge. There was debris from a size2 avalanche off the summit ridge/Couloirs into the east facing basin that looked to have gone overnight as it was only lightly dusted in new snow. Warm all day but snow didn't get wet. Flurries on and off up to 1cm/h. Nice to see a bit of Sun!

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours. Slab avalanches today or yesterday. Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
