The skiing here was almost too good to be true. wouldn’t recommend this spot if conditions are worse than yellow yellow red because of overhead, but everything was settled nicely and snowpack was very well consolidated. We had very little wind activity where we were, but there were a few sluffs of snow being blown around near the mountain top, with nothing triggering. There were a couple of slides that looked days old, but everything seemed very well supported. 10/10 would shred again.

Snow conditions were: Heavy, Powder. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was amazing.

Snowpack

snowpack was very well consolidated and consistent.

Weather

there was a few spindrifts of snow that we observed coming off the top of the mountain (cory) that blew some sluffs around, but was very tame down at tree line.
