Blow Me Down Glades

katherine.hanak

Great Skiing in the Lower Glades. Peaked up in the alpine and snow was great in some lee pockets but the rocks at the base of the Mainline are still not completely covered. A very reactive storm slab about 5cm thick would crack and break off under the skis while skinning on the high Eastern slopes.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Stormy. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees. Riding quality was amazing.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.

Snowpack

Snow in Treeline was amazing, 15cm of fresh snow sitting on top of the rain crusts.
