I would agree that wind slab is the 1 problem but the windslabs that formed this morning and into the day might have been the softest windslabs ever formed.

Beautiful day for some bouncing around.  Did find very soft windslab formation on the patsy marly ridge.  No storm slab instabilities noted.  Pit results CT21& 24 SP (on the basal 4f in profile).  ECTX.  Beautiful day skiing.
