Snow Characteristics Comments
Highly variable snow surfaces out there.
Between 8,000 and 9,500 feet, I mostly found wind-jacked or sun crusted snow surfaces. On northerly treed and otherwise wind protected terrain, there is still soft snow, and the surface is rapidly faceting.

No red flags. Snowpack feels very stable right now.
