Completed the north couloir then traversed East around Cirque Peak. Overnight cool temps made for easy travel up to base of South ridge of Cirque. Sun effect on solar was just beginning to soften up around noon which made the final push up south ridge to couloir enjoyable with no ski crampons needed. The summer hiking trail still had blown snow filling it and was a great way to gain elevation on skis. North aspect had great skiing and was dry down to at least 2500m (low as we got for North) and had 10cm ski pen. Great day to be out.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.
