December 30, 2014 Cowboy Ridge Whistler
« on: 01/01/15, 02:35 PM »

Found excellent fresh snow on the west sides of Flute Drainage, Oboe, and the SE side of Cowboy Ridge. All ridge lines were wind scoured. Most tracked snow was crud. At this time of the year, this is a full day as the Singing Pass trail is not a good option yet. Avalanche conditions were rated Moderate and Low at Treeline. Very stable snow even on steeper terrain. Skied into Village at twilight. Great Bluebird day!

My last picture was taken last year but showed the view of the tour from the top of Lesser Flute. The first ridgeline is Obeo, and the second is Cowboy Ridge.
