Toured up the common West Cornbiscuit Ridge – descended one of the North facing chutes.
Also, including a couple pictures of a glide avalanche on Tincan (~1,500′ in elevation, West aspect). This avalanche occurred around Nov 11th or 12th.
COLD. Single digits with a very slight Southerly breeze on the ridge. Clear skies.
Loose faceted snow with some old stiff wind crust on North aspects. South and West aspects are variable; hard wind slabs, loose faceted snow and bare ground.
Thin. 1-2' of variable snow cover. The cold temperatures have begun to facet much of the shallow pack. Once buried, this faceted snow could become our first weak layer. Something to watch for. The good news is the winds have distributed much of the weak snow, so it's not as uniform as it could be.
