Route & General Observations

Raced the winds to get in a couple decent laps from the top of pk3 this
afternoon. Started out with moderate winds (on the low end of the scale) and
relatively unconsolidated windbuffed powder in the gully. Uptrack and downtrack
filled in between first and second runs as winds intensified. Couple shooting
cracks a few feet out from my skis while skinning out of the gully to the ridge
for lap two but seemed shallow, without much energy, and part of a small
windslabbed area without significant consequence. Skiing down lap two the snow
had generally consolidated into a soft windslab on top and I imagine if the
winds keep up it will be breakable windboard by tomorrow.
