Clear night, good weather forecast and very little wind meant that the the next day or two were shaping up great. Headed to Cupola to bag it before any wind/sun affected the route up/down. There is one steeper section on the initial climb from the col which would feel exposed in higher hazard. Coming from the Meadow side would likely feel better. Once on the ridge travel was easy and soon we were standing on the peak. Had a great view into the head of Mayvill Creek which is where we were planning on spending the remainder of the day. I was pleasantly surprised by the snow quality down to Silhouette Lake - good thing we skied this south facing slope early as even a few hours later it was getting moist. We then skied some very nice alpine pow (Mayvill's navel and Dark Side of the Moon). Finished with a short climb up Cairn Peak and steep few turns off the NE side. Warm day and got a bit dehydrated. 1L of water is not enough in the spring...
Backcountry skiing (Helio) 6:00:00  16.0 km (22:30 / km) +2300m 13:05 / km
Forecast called for some snow and it delivered - 20cm of cold low density snow and another few cm through the day. Took advantage of the cloudy weather and skied a couple SE facing lines before they got baked. Could feel the crust but on moderate slopes it was still really good skiing (and some face shots due to the low density). Then dropped over the backside for a couple great runs on either side of Hogzilla. Skier's right works well though you do tend to ski cut the entire upper start zone (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). Snuck in one more south facing run on Dessert to finish and it was still skiing OK.
