This was our group's first time out in awhile and in a new zone nonetheless. As such, we operated with wide margins despite the decreasing avalanche hazard:
We favored slopes less than 30 degrees. We felt comfortable skiing one short pitch that fell in the 30-35 degree range only after assessing conditions. We skied within sight/hooting distance of eachother and regrouped frequently to avoid getting off course in unfamiliar terrain.
