Snow was great, deep powder everywhere. Snowbike paradise. Rode lot of roads, mellow cutblocks and mostly flat trees. Stuck lots, noticed while digging out each time the top ~30 cm would slide easily off a crust. We weren’t able to trigger any thing off of small road banks or pillows surprisingly, but noticed lots natural activity as far as we could tell. Remote triggered a small slide after going down from top to bottom second time. Looked like same 30 cm top layer.morningsunny -2 C. snow felt heavier towards end of day, started snowing again.

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

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours. Slab avalanches today or yesterday.

Avalanche

We remote triggered small slide on open cutblock, riding lower angle slope adjacent too from top of block straight too bottom. North facing slope. No info on big slide, saw from road, same area, north facing slope, similar elevation looked ~300m wide across whole face
