Went out to ski one of the lookout couloirs. Vis was in and out and we saw a fair amount of wind affected snow and slab as we got higher. Opted to ski the ravens instead, the top 15-20cm was super reactive as we went down, a lot of it was coming down in small .5s, wind slab up high and as we got lower it was running easily on the crust. Wasn't a surprise but still had us on edge a bit.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Windy. We rode: Convex slopes, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was ok.
