Wawa ridge

Had an amazing day on wawa ridge. Lots of wind transport occurring up there making for some amazing ski quality and wasn’t showing signs of instability. We skied 2 more mellow safer lines with less wind deposited snow first. And cut a decent sized cornice onto a steep ish slope and didn’t find any instability. We felt confident in the snow and finished with 2 laps on the steeper pitch below the cornice. Didn’t trigger any suffs or slides and skied 30cm or more in certain pockets of low density snow. Didn’t hit any sharks or debris all day.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Stormy, Windy, Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
