Yesterdays light powder was turned into wind slap and cascade crud in some places. Mixed bag. Seemed like a warm, moist layer was moving around.Some crust at 2,000 m but mostly soft slab that was reactive. Most slide areas around Flute went including Pigs Fancy and everything steep east of Lesser Flute. Whistler Pro on top said considerable danger but they only thought the first 15 cm of soft slab would slide. He said potential for injury, but not burial. North faces that were wind protected were still prime but ridge lines and exposed faces skied with difficulty. Lots of exciting falls to watch!
Snowed hard in the am and everything stayed real good until around noon. More coming tomorrow to freshen things up. Trees are finally filled in enough and fun! Tracks on some big slopes but I'm not going there. Danger going to High tomorrow. Inbounds Day - and a careful one at that.
