Skied bow summit today. The parking lot was dead quite only 2 other cars. The snow was pretty good and the clouds opened up and revealed the sun as we climbed and only came back out when we got back to the car around 3:00. We got to the top ridge of the front face and had decent turns down in powder with small areas with debris or chunks. There was a crust below the new snow but riding quality was still pretty good.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.

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