Very very deep cold $moke out there! Honest waist deep or better and im 6’1″!
Safe slope angles to ski meant few turns just point it! No collapsing or
settling observed. Upper alpine appeared to have slight wind effect and some
ridges showed new small cornices had formed on SW aspect. Extremely blower pow
today, perhaps a gas powered leaf blower would have outperformed a shovel!
Visible natural sloughs ran far with little horizontal propagation. Windy enough
to cause dummy bombs from trees and transport snow along ridges.
