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

Snowpack

15cm of fresh light cold powder, No obvious layers in the new snow and seemed well bonded to older storm snow. Some pockets of shallower snowpack near rocks/trees had sugary facets just below recent storm slab. No evidence of rain crust under storm snow.
