Great day out of Bostock. Great coverage all the way to creek. Above 1400m the snow really softens. High-fives will be had. A compression test on a E-SE aspect revealed a resistant-planar result (CTH 24 - down 60). Early December crust/facets down 110-130cm did not produce any results. Pit was to build some future sense - we skied a W aspect.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Foggy, Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees, Steep slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Compression Test Hard 24 - down 60 - Resistant Planar CTH 24 down 60 - RP Atmospheric River/ early Dec Crust + Facets down 110-130cm - did not produce any results, although a CT column 130cm tall isn’t too appropriate.
