Snow Characteristics Comments: 

Found pretty good corn snow conditions on SE then S then W. Snow on those aspects was too warm by 12:30pm. Surprised by the supportable foundation as we've had weak overnight refreezes. Only found these conditions around 8000-8800'. Below that was way less supportable and rapidly disintegrated once the sun hit it.

Red Flags:

Comments: 

Classic Utah spring time conditions though the time frame for safe skiing is very short. Tomorrow's will be shorter.
