Options for turns were limited. Diving into steep terrain invited the potential for powerful sloughing. Lower angle terrain required downhill trailbreaking. Occasionally one could find a happy medium, but as soon as the slope angle backed off, you just augured in.
Nevertheless, there were some visits to the white room.
Those pictures look good, but I'll be honest, the skiing wasn't all that great. Given the choice between a Goldilocks storm with good "bounce" or over-the-head blower, I'll take bounce every time. Today was too deep, at least in the backcountry. My bet is that it will ski better tomorrow after some settlement.
Back to work.
Better one taken by my partner illustrating the downhill "trench" breaking to get over to another line.
