Today we went into the Flathead Range to get a baseline on the deepening snowpack. We were pleasantly surprised to find roughly 2 feet of snow on south aspects and roughly 3 feet of snow on north aspects at mid and upper elevations.
We chose to ski down our up track due to timing, NRSAW, and a healthy dose of bush in our other options. The best riding we found was above roughly 5500' and in open meadowed areas.
Wind slabs were specific to leeward aspects and small in size. We did find small slabs on lee aspects where the wind hardened the surface.
