Travel was from the main trailhead to just shy of the Gash Knob summit. We decided not to summit Gash Knob due to marginal skiing on the wind-affected snow. We skied fairly consistent dense powder down South Bowl.
Temps were rather mild today, helping consolidate the new snow from the past week or so. Winds were moderate/strong out of the NW, creating stubborn wind slabs and marginal skiing on wind-affected terrain. I kicked on a few wind-loaded pillows and did not experience any cracking or collapsing. I dug a few hand pits in shallow north-facing terrain and did not find any facets.
