Panorama Ridge 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
Headed up to Panorama Ridge with a group of 8. Group traveled well, was efficient and more importantly was fun. The Bell couloir looks really cool.

There is a well broken trail up to Panorama Ridge and we dug a pit on a westerly aspect near the top. Snow depth was 1.3 m with no surprises. Column test showed a moderate failure at 25 cm, likely the Jan 7 crust. There was a hard failure on some facets 40 cm down. The rest of the snow pack was well consolidated with up to 50 cm of settlement based on tree cones. The snow quality was terrible will alternating sections of breakable crust and bullet proof hard. One of our group of 8 managed to link 2 consecutive turns. I gave up when my I could feel my bones twist when hitting breakable crust after sliding down a bullet proof section.

Good luck finding pow, the winds and high temperatures were hard on the snow pack on a wide range of elevations.
