Written Report:
Conditions were variable as we toured from the resort to the butte, a very thin breakable crust existed on most aspects. In more sheltered areas in the North facing trees the snow quality improved greatly. Overall good riding conditions, on very steep slopes heading out, we observed very isolated pockets of loose dry however no other signs of instability were observed.
