Route & General Observations

No red flags while touring thru Fairangel, NW Pinnacle valley, NE Pinnacle Valley, backside Microdot, Sidney Creek and Rae Wallace. Surface hoar up to 15 mm. Windboard beginning to facet out. Lots of firm snow. As has been the case recently, the best snow was in Sidney Creek and lower down in the Pinnacle valleys. No formal stability tests. Pretty jingling musical notes from sluffing surface hoar :)
