We didn’t feel notice any signs of instability but our tests results were in line wt what the av bulletin said: Surface Hoar was reactive (ECTP21) down 65 cm about 2 cms above the late Jan crust. So we choose to ride the mellower line hugging the ridge as much as we could.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
