A few layers of slabs consisting of 1F hardness snow. Weakest layer here was the 4F graupel (3+mm) intermixed with scattered but sharp 2-4mm stellars. This layer was down 55cm here, and was the 1/14 interface. Surface hoar coated the surface in open areas. Test results were:
CTM SC x2
PST 35/100 (End)
With such a progressive storm track, it has been somewhat difficult to keep accurate tabs on the snowpack. The obvious has been in the avalanche observations. What I saw today was a mixture of deep weak layers, presumably basal facets have been acting up with incremental loading, and the 1/14 interface (which likely ranges from 40cm to 100cm deep depending on aspect, elevation, and which part of the range.
1. Pt 10626, ENE aspect south of Box Elder into Wide Hollow.
2. NE-SE terrain off Pt 11036 south of White Baldy. The crown wrapped around to below the mid slope cliffs on R if you look carefully.
3. E facing off upper Cascade Cirque.
4. SW facing terrain, lower SR-92 corridor (6200ft)
5. Lost Creek debris from eastern most bowl (SE at 9800ft)
