BC Trip, what to expect with these snow conditions
We have not had a great year around where I live in regards to snow/avalanche conditions. However with the Below Treeline danger at low we have decided to make a small trip out to a closed down ski area near there we live.
Snow conditions are essentially a harder layer with little fresh snow on top and a thick faceted layer of snow underneath. I realize the hike up will not be fun as the hard layer will not support someone on snowshoes. However what is boarding like in these conditions. The idea would be to hike to the tree line then ride down before finding a good place to set up a kicker and fool around for the afternoon.
Thanks in advance,
