Snowpack: 6-12 inches of recent snow well bonded to a firm crust over strong mid and base layers. Lower angle terrain skied better because you didn't hit the crust.

Area Description: Mt Baker Backcountry

Avalanches: No recent activity even skiing steeper terrain. Skied over a lot of past avalanche debris.
