General Observations

Skied from the highway about 8 miles up the Black Rapids Glacier. Crossing the Delta river was easy by avoiding the obvious holes, there was lots of sneaky overflow further up Black Rapids creek. Temps were above 0, very strong wind out of the south was quickly eroding the soft snow along the valley floor and leaving only hard layers. We saw lots of spindrift coming off the surrounding ridges but no recent avalanche activity.
