Route & General Observations
Rabbit cr trail to the pass. Most aspects scoured as usual for this drainage that sees predominate SE down valley winds. SW to NW are blown in making things skiable. Turn quality was decent after getting through a bit a of breakable at the top.
Light SE breeze, clear skies, 25 deg
4-6" of new/blown in snow
HS = 60 cm, Aspect: SW, slope angle: 28deg Elev ~ 3500
roughly 6" down there is a rain crust that is about as hard as they come. It was challenging to even get my shovel blade to penetrate the icy rain crust which effectively locked up the snow pack to the ground . No tests done as it was literally too difficult to isolate a column.
