Turned back at mosquito shelter, slopes had definitely been warm/rained on but were crusty today 1 cm of crust on top of heavier loose snow, enough to slide fast going straight and break through when turning. Not fun.

Snow conditions were: Crusty. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was terrible.


1 cm thick crust on top of looser thicker snow.
