It certainly has filled in and was good from last Wednesday (my first time out) to Sunday. At the end of the day Sunday the wind started to pick up in a big way and there was big effect noticable on the ski out. I was concerned about slab formation as we went in yesterday and after we got into the cirque the wind loading was obvious. We chose an ascent route lookers left up into the cirque and noticed a 30-40 cm slab sitting on top of a 1cm crust in the upper bowl. This was verified by the MCR email that was published yesterday by a guide that was in a group of 3 skiers that was out at the same time as our group.
Any updates on how K-Country? Seems like a lot of snow has come in in the past 2 weeks. I have a surgery on the 25th which is gonna put me out for 3-4 weeks. Interested in getting out one more time before.
