    Lots of snow on Duffy E of Cayoosh Pass. We skied e facing slopes and stayed away from windloaded NW and N slopes. SH of about 1mm growing below tree line

    HS 178 cms at 2090m. E aspect. 30 degree slope.

    Fist 0-27cms
    4F 27- 40
    1f 40-57

    W/S @ 25cms

    Dec 3 pineapple 70 cms 7cm thick

    Compression test

    CTM 11 @25cms
    CTM 26 @ 45cms

    SShear Med @ 45cms

    None of these were sudden planar


    Some pictures

    Rob skinning up



    Approaching the ridgeline. Lots of skiable aspects which is why I like this place



    First run a bit disappointing as it was too low angle. Second run was better - Jameson attacks





    Nice long runs - each about 400m or 1300 ft of blower powder


    Sharon's turn

    we were at ridgeline. Wind probably took care of facets at ridgeline.

    Definite facets around shallow snowpack on E faces (around rocks when i took ski off to skin up) Also in some treewells btl - I could really feel the facets when breaking trail up to the E facing chutes.

    Yeah the orange jacket is lighter than the black one. I'll take any advantage I can get when I'm trying to keep up with Lee!

    Good meeting you dude and way to rip it last week! I hope you get your boots figured out soon.
