We dug several pits on similar slopes and found varying test results. All the activity was within the top 16 inches of snow. Al pits were on North to Northeast facing slopes around 8800 feet. We got a few compression test failures at 8 inches between CT14 and CT20. Another couple of failures at 16 inch depth on CT between CT 16 and CT 24. However we couldnt get anything to propagate on the Extended Column Test.
We rode several steep wind loaded test slopes approaching 40 degrees and although they felt very slabby, nothing moved all day.
The riding was good but we would only sink 6-8 inches into the snow on hard carves. By 1200 the snow surface was getting saturated and I would expect crust on many slopes tomorrow.
