Comments
Dug at 7000ft NE. CT24 about 50cm down, at the Feb 2 storm snow interface on the underlying crust. ECT was unreactive. Crusts were decomposing and facets were rounding. This is obviously not representative of high elevations, but the trend continues toward stability for the time being. Photo below.
Surface hoar.
