Clear and calm weather, inverted temps in the morning. A thin veil of clouds formed late morning and dissipated early afternoon. S faces got moist but I did not see any wet activity. Light gusts from S at summit elevations, no snow transport to speak of.
Surfaces are faceting as expected, especially where not wind hammered. In some areas, there is a thin wind skin - FCsf - polished alpine surface combo that for now makes mostly for difficult travel, but if loaded could be an issue. Mostly observed on E through S where I was today, but I think local wind effects and loading patterns are just as important as the large scale patterns for this specific structure.
Dropped a couple of cornices and stomped around, but wind slabs seem pretty settled by now and did not budge.
I skied up to mid 40s in sheltered terrain with good run outs.Close
