The weather for the week was light snow showers over night with plummeting temperatures throughout the week. Our coldest day reached a balmy -18degrees F. But these cold temperatures preserved the quality of the snow and even though we did not receive any significant snowfall we still skied daily freshies. The Avalanche conditions stayed between moderate and considerable throughout the trip with our main concern being a persistent weak layer and wind loading. Other than a some storm snow sluffing, the only release was a wind pocket Sakeus found. It had about a 2ft deep crown by 80ft to 100ft across. He managed to stay on his feet but it served as a reminder that the persistent layer is present during this trip.
