Phantom Couloir/Ogden Benches
Alexander de Boer , Friday 15th April, 2022 6:50PM
Morning started chilly but warmed up rapidly as the sun came out. The benches softened up a little with the direct sun, we noticed some pinwheeling but the snowpack was very consolidated and stable. We found a few softer turns here where the sun did its work, but elsewhere was bullet hard crust. Phantom was a hard crust the whole way. Terrible skiing conditions in the couloir. No wind all day, and pretty mild temperatures.
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard. Weather conditions were: Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was terrible.
