Snowy and windy day at Keystone today. Wind was blowing steady moderate from the south and it snowed about 5 cm while we were out there. There was about 20-25 cm of dry snow sitting on a breakable crust, which made for some good riding in the trees. Visibility was too poor to see any of the surrounding area, but we did not notice any recent avalanche activity in the areas we rode.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Stormy, Windy. We rode: Convex slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.
