Route & General Observations
Mid day tour into Chugach State Park to capitalize on the new snow before winds come in.
Partly sunny, 28degrees. Winds were calm to non existent.
4-6" low density new snow from 3/15-16 sitting on a variety of surfaces from bare tundra to stiff wind board and semi-supportable sun crust. 1-2mm surface hoar found capping the soft surface.
Loose snow sluffing was slow and low enough volume to not be an issue on 35-45 degree northerly slopes. Really fun front range skiing.... Just gotta get it before the winds do!
