Spring snowpack with thick supportive crust in morning and top few cm softening in afternoon. Upper 100 cm contains multiple ice crusts and rounds. Extended column and compression tests were unreactive. We found north aspects at treeline around Fraser still have over 150 cm snow but some steeper south aspects are melted right to ground.

Snow conditions were: Crusty. Weather conditions were: Warm, Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
