No new snow again last night and we are getting some settlement in the snow pack as temperatures have warmed. The visibility is good, so fast groomers are the go today.

If you are going further afield in search of powder remember that the winds of 2 days ago have created wind slab in the open bowls. This means that the transference of shock from your movement is easy through the pack and may easily trigger an avalanche. This is especially true around ridges, rock outcrops and convex terrain. Watch out that you don't add more stress to the slope by adding mutiple members on to the same area or slope.

Always wear a beacon and carry a shovel, probe and other rescue necessities while outside the resorts. Don't forget to put your thinking cap on.
