Snow Characteristics Comments
1.5 to <3 feet of total snow at upper elevations. Not finding much strong snow, with weakest in the top 6" or so. Even sun-crusts are pretty weak, and the snow is quite loose and sugary almost everywhere. Widespread areas with surface hoar feathers. Variable, crumbly sun-crust on south facing slopes, with none on W-N-E or on the flats, even where pretty sunny.
