General Observations

Reached the summit of White Princess with clear skies and warm weather! The snow was far to crusty to ski from the summit, but with a few more weeks of warm weather a ski descent of the south face from the summit should be possible. We skied the south west face, below ~8000ft there was several inches of loose powder on a solid base. In other parts of the valley we observed several isolated wind slab releases, as well as a cornice fall that triggered a large avalanche.
