Season closer in the Middle Fork was one of the better winter days, despite the calendar saying April. We stuck to terrain below 7000 feet; above that elevation it was obvious recent winds had affected the surface snow and created some a Wind Slab avalanche hazard. We found little evidence of a slab avalanche hazard on the numerous short, steep pitches we skied. These were up to 40 degrees, with one short, steeper pitch.
Able to skin from road into Cascadilla. Skis off 2x for Rescue exit. It was sporty. Mr. Toad's wild ride.
triggered with turns on steep north through northeast facing slopes. didn't run fast or far. Stayed on the surface.
