Got in the alpine today. 35cms ski pen on w/l slopes in Balu/Bruins area. No whumpfing. Felt a hint of a w/s layer lower in valley with pole probes but no signs of same layer on SE facing slopes at TL and BTL
Pillows and convexities didn't react to ski cuts. some sluffing on storm snow but no slabs.
Skied off SW facing slope off McGill shoulder into the burns. Found the same facet layer from Christmas but failling on moderate shears on that aspect. Ski pen was 30 or so and slope was w/l with fluffy white fist density snow. Skied a protected treed ridged rib instead of wide open bowl due to exposure.
Probably a bit conservative as ski cutting convexities produced nil results in any event. Quality turns
