Location Name or Route:
The picture below is one piece of crust that I picked up. This crust is widespread and on various aspects. It is firm enough that your skis won't break through except on turns.
The snow cover, as we all know, is extremely variable at the moment. I saw 0" to 3' of snow on my trip today. I never though I'd have to walk through mud in January. In any case, we need to remember for when it does snow that rocks and trees lurk very close to the surface. Also, we need to remember to keep our "avy mindset" on even though there is not much snow. Just because it's white doesn't mean that you should ski/ride on it, especially with the layers in our current snow pack.
