7cm over last couple days sloughed and pinwheeled yesterday wrecking the skiing on steep features but made for good skiing on lower angled polar slopes. Quite windy but not much snow for transport limited slab development to thin wind slabs just below Lee features on north aspects. Easy skinning and good travel. Decent turns on purple and hero's was good up high and low but middle was full of debris. Cornices large on purple bowl but happy things were cool this morning. Great freeze down to road level overnight.
