Yukon

Rode the road side of Paddy's area. It was sunny with light to no wind. Snow was 10-20cm of powder on top of wind slabs sitting on softer snow. We stayed low as snow quality deters the closer you get to the alpine. I triggered a small size 1 slide. The powder snow slid on what seemed to be faceted snow. There was an inversion. It was approximately -15 where we transitioned and -20 at the road.

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