Day off tour hunting for powder skiing. Chose mostly mid elevation slopes without steep, leeward start zones, though they were subject to crossloading.
Our first skin track was up a gladed, mid-elevation slope with short pitches of 30 degrees. Our first run was down a similar slope, with a short pitch of 35 degrees. With no signs of instability on this ascent and descent, we stepped out to steep (35-40*), consequential terrain, again with no signs of instability apart from the low elevation sluffs.
Sluffs on steep rolls and slopes. Moved slowly but entrained snow on slope below.
