About 10cm fresh overnight at the cabin and snowing throughout the day. Lap in the trees above the cabin proved to provide a supportive skin track and low density powder (approx 30cm) for skiing. Could feel the density change around the trees where the wind likely caused tree bombs but otherwise the open areas were nice and fluffy. No instabilities felt or noted on the up or down. Big thanks to the Kamloops crew in before us with help on some sled digging and some supplies after some sled damage to ours. Thanks! Wind was picking up later in the afternoon and vehicle had about 3cm of fresh snow that fell between 930 and and 400pm.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Stormy. We rode: Dense trees, Open trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was amazing.
