Rock isle lake area

bensoneff

Toured around rock isle lake and skied the backside of standish and the small zone above the lake aswell as the steeper slopes to the lookers left of the ski area boundary above strawberry chairlift. Crust was prevalent everywhere but 10-15cm of low density snow above it. Crust provided good coverage and didn’t find any sharks. Snow felt very stable but wasn’t binding super well to the nov 5th crust on steep ish off camber slopes as we skinned up the snow would often slide down. There was also lots of rime on all the trees.

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