Overall an impressive snow pack for 7000' in SW Utah, I assume it will not be like this very year! No significant basal facets, 4" or so of damp rounds, overlain by a solid mid pack. HS 100 cm, The glove marks the location of a knife hard 6mm rain crust that is decomposing. ECTN, the column eventually fell apart. Ski pole is sitting on the ground.
Photo below, surface hoar.
Photo below, some roller balls while skiing through a slightly damp layer of surface hoar. Less activity than expected.
And now, as Paul Harvey would say: The rest of the story: I went looking for terrain along the I70 corridor and to get a look at the big north faces of the Tushers, wound up skiing some laps on an I70 road cut, above an exit parking area (not the highway itself) ! I was glad it did not slide because Bill Nalli (UDOT) once told me not to start avalanches above the road!
I was impressed by the depth and stability of the snow pack in this area. I am calling this area as part of the Tushers since it is on the south side of I70. Pahvants are the north side of the road.
The nearest snotel site is the Kimberly Mine located appro. 3 miles north at 9100', HS is 53 inches. I did not observe any sled activity heading into the high country in this area.
