East Face > Clems > Bruiser
Rode lifts to Morningside then skied East face > Clems > N side of Bruiser. Exited via the canyon.
Snowpack observed on N & SW aspects BTL. HS variable 80-130cm.
S/SW aspects (Girly Turns, 9700-1000′) had shallower snowpack depths (~80cm) and crusts of variable thicknesses HN 5″.
N aspects (clems & N Bruiser, 9600-10100′) HS ~130cm. Upper/mid pack slab F -> P (top down to 85cm) on ~40cm basal facets. HN 5″ reactive, either sluffing (steeper slopes Bruiser bowl) or sliding as a thin cohesive slab (upper canyon below Nose Bleed) on layer of .5mm-3cm surface hoar. Thinner and weaker snowpack exiting the canyon.
Skiing was good, the 5″ of new snow helped a lot and made for some good skiing. Sporty exit out of the canyon due to thin cover and exposed shrubbery.
