Written Report:
Did a lap on "pucker up". Observed Ball butte was wind scoured on most aspects on tour out. South sister had recent slab avalanche on lower east aspect. East aspect of broken top had enjoyable ~3 inches off settled new snow, bonded well to layer below. Light winds and warm temps by noon were dampening snow on the exit.

While not exactly "ski" conditions. Dutchmans flat parking lot is 1-2feet of rutted snow/ice and was a nightmare without my winter snow tires.
