Awesome turning on north and east slopes on faceted snow. Sun crusted on the south slopes. Wind scoured on the ridges.
Dropped many cornices above the divide without any results on the snowfields below.
The past two days I have dug numerous pits south and north of the divide from 6000-7500 ft. I have not been able to find the buried surface hoar. I have been digging to five feet. Not sure why I can not find it, as I saw the surface hoar before the recent storm cycle. I have not been able to get a fracture with any of the ECT's in this area. Lots of new surface hoar forming out there however.
Photos of surface hoar yesterday and today.
