The conditions varied from soft unpacked cover to sheet ice on the upper exposed slopes. These exposed slope made us wish we had packed crampons. We were able to do some long touring due the had packed upper terrain but the boarding was not that flash as most of the ridding was on pure ice. With blue bird days and -6 at night the temperature swing was about 12 degrees. At least this will give a good base that will hopefully last the season.
