Good day at the Dome Col. Decided to not drop in to the Lily glacier due to unknown snow conditions on that side. Dug a put @2200 m which we were able to trigger the Dec 26 surface hoar, so stayed away from unsupported terrain.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.

Snowpack

CT easy 8 @ 15 cm PC, CT moderate 14 @ 30cm, CT hard @ 110cm SP. Did multiple tests with 2/4 triggering Dec 26 layer.
