Recent Avalanches, and Warming.
Sunny and clear skies, light wind from the NE, high near 40 degrees.
Melt-Freeze Crust, warmed and became soft as day went on for Southerly aspects. Boot Pen: boot top. West aspects did not receive much warming. Surface conditions remained consistently hard until 3pm.
Elevation: 2050. Aspect: SSW. Slope Angle: 22 degrees. Spring snowpack in the southerlies. Layer of Concern: After conducting 5 stability tests and found decomposing Burried Surface Hoar @ 35-47cm. Tests CT7 and ECTP7@35cm CT21SC@47cm.
