Observation: Summit, Seward

Location: Carter Lake

Route & General Observations

Toured above Carter lake and found variable snow, nice view and killer temps. We dug a pit on a SE facing slope at 2200. There was about 3 feet of snow. We found one inch of light new snow resting on top of a one inch wind crust. Below that there was a foot of decomposing stellars, then a couple of Thanksgiving crusts, then a pretty sugary facety mess to the ground. CT25 that failed between the T-day crusts.
No woomfing, shooting cracks or recent avalanches observed. We did see debris from two southeast facing D2/3 avalanches that probably ran after the last storm.
