Snow Characteristics Comments

Hero conditions today with cold powder snow atop a stout supportable crust. Even slightly wind affected areas skied well. Sun played peekaboo and due south was starting to go off but limited due to cold temps. 

Exposed ridgeline and ridgetop had significant fresh snow drifts 3-4' tall from previous storm. 

Overall stable conditions for any kind of riding. Would expect possible loose snow sluffs on very steep slopes at all elevations. Observed a few very small, shallow, dry snow sluffs on Beaver Backside triggered by snowboarder.
