Three Sisters Area
Ski or Snowboard
I toured around Todd Lake and took a single run from Todd Ridge. While it was very pleasant and wintry out, there still isn't very much snow on the ground. There is 40 cm. of snow in open areas (see picture!). Skiing on shadier pitches was really very fun and soft, but that same softness means your boards are just inches above the ground. I definitely hit some rocks. Sunnier slopes were getting a bit moist.
I didn't see any evidence of any avalanche problems on the East facing slopes I toured on. The current snow-pack I saw was right-side-up, despite the colder temps toward the end of last week.
I think I'll stick to xc skiing til we get a little more snow on the ground. It is beautiful out there!
At the back of Todd Lk. at noon it was: Clear, Calm and 0 C. There was 40 cm. of snow. My boot pen was 36 cm. and my ski pen was 15 cm.
