The danger was rated “moderate” that day and we didn’t see any signs of instabilities on the way up, including stomping a few cornices. But, there was some obvious wind transport going on (see scoured slope to the right) and some fat wind-loaded pillows that didn’t respond to ski cutting. That center to right-side line looks pretty tasty, but I’d avoid it, especially for a first run.
