Supreme (Alta Periphery)
Dug a quick pit on the Supreme ridge line on a NW slope at 10600' to check out the layer cake. Snow depth of 20cm.
Ground-8cm: big facets from first storm, upwards of 6mm in size; average 3mm
8cm-15cm: ground interface crust from long dry period, crystals 2mm in size. Very stubborn crust.
15cm-20cm: new snow layer, crystals 1-2mm. Early signs of surface hoar/further facing.
Could be in for another cautious backcountry season should this pattern continue...keep those snow dances and Ullr prayers coming!
