Would you like slab on your crust sir? Jan 25th & 26th

Back to bottomless blower powder again after a 4 day mild spell.

Hit Cortina yesterday after 70cm of snow (they just had another 70cm last night too!) Today was another secret spot this end of the valley.

The new storm snow isn’t sitting well on the frozen and possibly faceted wet crust from the mild spell. It was easy to set off 40-50cm deep slabs on any steeper or convex terrain. Stay safe and ski conservative lines until the crust gets buried by at least a metre and starts to stabilise and bond by compression.

and…Enjoy all that powder!
