Route & General Observations

Had good enough visibility to make a couple runs from the normal start zone on Sunburst ridge (below the knob). No whoomps or shooting cracks. Started feeling wind effect on the snow from 2500′, but other than stiff snow on the edge of the ridge was quite pleasant, 12-14″ or so of medium density over harder stuff. Wind generally pretty calm with some sustained gusts to 20-25. We felt confident enough that most of us skied west off the ridge down into Blind Bowl, a couple lines were skied down the ridge.
