Rogers Pass Perley Rock – Jan 17, 2009

Bruins– 8812 – Jan 16, 2009 || TriangleMoraine – Jan 18, 2009

Skied today in the Great Glacier side looking for less sun-affected slopes. Had a nice tour to Perley Rock.

Ran into a group ahead of us that found shallow snowpack (HS 80cms) on NE facing slopes off a ridge. They had hard results on a compression test. We did an ECT test on a WSW facing pit on that same ridge. Depth there was about 200cms and we had no results. Contrary to the PC forecast that said HIGH we would have rated treeline Moderate and Alpine Considerable. So we skied and had good snow.
