Skied out of Fischer creek saddle Sunday 11-29-15. Toured up west of saddle to ridge. Skied west aspect which was wind affected even 1000' low on low angle terrain. Toured back up and skied east aspect back to sleds. Half way down the snow got good. Not wind, sun or temperature affect. Overall 2 feet with 3 in spots. No surface hoar development. Minimal sled activity due to thin coverage.
