Had an awesome day skiing the back side of crystal ridge today! The north facing slopes are still holding boot deep powder while the road side of crystal ridge was nice corn around 3 pm. We rode the slope beside sugar cube but could see some people dropped into sugar cube couloir probably yesterday. Lots of good turns to be had out there still! Should note that we cut off some soft wind skins around 10 cm thick at the top of our run but no whumfing, hollow sounds, or cracks to be seen.

Snow conditions were: Wind affected, Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
