Report from skier:
Toured to top of the tele bowl at the base of Punta Bardini, encountering excellent spring corn in early afternoon.
Observed point release in main north-facing chute below summit which ran about 3/5 of the way down, stopping above a large convexity.
Encountered a party which skied from summit, starting early and returning shortly before noon. They reported “five powder turns” at the very top but disappointingly hard snow skiing through the forested ridge to the northeast which hadn’t softened.
Encountered a solo skier as I approached the base of the bowl who reported skiing down the south side and returning around the east side of PB. He said he was lucky to have had smooth skiing in the one south-facing chute which hadn’t had a point release from the storm earlier this week. He reported no propagation in the snow he disturbed.
