Pretty good day for Dec.1! Definitely boney out there still but probed 100cm in all 3 different spots through out the day. Saw one decent sized debris pile. Size 2-2.5 from what looked like a cornice release in the last couple days. Wind was around 50km/h from the west and signs of wind slabs were forming.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Slab avalanches today or yesterday.
