العناية بالبشرة I noticed signs of loose wet surface slides in sunny areas and got a bit of snow sticking to my skins over by Wildy Bowl pit. Given the more stable results I'd gotten elsewhere I was a bit surprised at the RP fractures I got near Wildy. I also saw quite a bit of surface hoar, larger near Williams Lake Trail and smaller as I went up in altitude. With my low level of experience and being solo I opted to stick to shallower slopes up into Wildy Bowl but was not super concerned. I did not ascend up the slopes inside the bowl once I got there and was getting to tired to do another pit in there.
