Variable light snowfall the whole day. Cloud deck was varying at around 4500ft most of the time we were there.
Made it to Schreibers and up as far as the Salad Bowl. Marginal visibility at the upper elevations today made travel tough, and we had no interest in going higher.
Just under 1ft of new snow from overnight was present, and riding conditions were great. The snow wasn’t wind affected and was right side up, generally well bonded to underlying layers. I did get some pit test results above the crust but nothing that gave me concern in this location.
The south facing crust was noticeable, although not as present on the east and west facing terrain. Only very minor sluffing, or dry loose, on very steep slopes was visible where we were, although we were unable to see any higher elevations.
Riders were out on the steep, east-facing Railroad Grade and the west facing steeps as well, with no avalanches produced.
