We dug three pits today below Wolverine Bowl in the chutes areas leading to Lake Mary. All these pits were between 9,900' and 10,00'. We dug on NNW, NE, and NW and performed an ECT in each pit and saw three ECTX. The depth of the snow pack was 160 cm on NNW pit where upon wailing on the 31st hit had full propagation on the NSF below the slab which was made up of the three storms going back to last Wednesday. When digging on the adjacent NE and NW aspects with a shallower pack (100-120cm) we expected to get a result on this layer but again nothing. The NE and NW pit we performed a CTN as well. I believe this is showing a false sense of stability and my takeaway is that although stubborn in many places the structure is out there to produce a large, unmanageable avalanche that is hard to predict and deserves some respect.
