Elbow Lake area
Fun day out in the Elbow Lake area. Snow depth was very variable, from 5cm to 1m. Managed to only hit a couple rocks. Crust was supportive enough, though we were definitely thinking featherlight thoughts on the descents. 20cm on top of the crust in the best spots. Winds picked up around 12pm.
Snow conditions were: Crusty. Weather conditions were: Windy, Warm, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Open trees. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.
