We purposely held our slope angles in check until we had investigated the pack right where we wanted to ski, after having a look, we pushed the angles over 35 in a little test pocket that had run during the Christmas Storm, but without any effect. This particular place had filled back in with new and drifting snow, no cracking, collapsing or hint on in stability. This is a look at the pack prior to ski testing a steeper, low consequence slope.
105 cm total at Miller Flat with 40 cm of settled snow on interval board from last 2 weeks
Typical wind damage, worse in some places, dirt showing on some exposed N facing summit ridges
