Route & General Observations

Mid day tour into Chugach State Park to capitalize on the new snow before winds come in.

Weather

Weather

Partly sunny, 28degrees. Winds were calm to non existent.

Snow Characteristics

Snow surface

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!
