ASTers got some great terrain management learning and great turns today. Packed fast powder was on the menu. We skied open avalanche paths and TL glades to 40 degrees. Profiles showed us the Dec 2 crust buried up to a meter had potential to trigger and propagate with a heavy load so we avoid shallow trigger zones higher in the Alpine. Great group!
Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy. We rode: Steep slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.
