Unsure what the weather would do we headed to NRC where there are a couple of low visibility options. In the end we saw a bit of everything...snow, wind, sun, cloud, fog, hot, cold.
The main slide paths had gone right to valley bottom. Not unheard of in spring. But the most interesting observation for us was how the shoulder gully to skier's left had also avalanched and taken out mature timber on either side of the path. It's right around here that the up track often enters into this gully to get around the cliff band in the middle section of the main avalanche paths.
Anyway, we skied. And it was good. Although a little character building below 1600 meters-ish.
