Aspect: North, North East, North West
Elevation: 9000 -12,392

Weather: Warm, Overcast, Clouds building throughout day. We got some sun holes. Calm winds with a couple of light gusts. had a 20 min periods of S1 snow around that did not seem to accumulate to much.
Snowpack: no signs of instability. The skiing was boot top deep and we did not feel an old layers below in the top bowl. I put in a couple of ski cuts when I dropped in but got no movement. Seems like the new snow has bonded well in this area.
