Started the day with low angle trees. Confidence was growing in snowpack so we decided to move to a steeper run off the backside. Ski cut from small convex feature at the entrance of the run produced shooting cracks and a small settlement. Moved down the ridge to plan B, different line with lower angle entrance/slope. Stayed on the mellow slopes for the rest of the day. Snow quality was blower, grade “A” powder.

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: 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. Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
