Route & General Observations
Standard route to Harp Mountain. Instead of climbing Harp we routed to Hidden Valley. Many cornices and most slopes looked windblown. The observed avalanches were post slide. We did not observe active sliding and chose to not ski any slopes.
Very warm when we were there - mid day. Approximately 40 fairenheit.
Wind crust on most of the snow. Escarpments near the ridge lines were very common.
We dug one snow pit. The base was approximately 1 inch of icy slushy snow with 1 weak layer mid snow pack. Please forgive the rough terminology.
