We toured Magpie up to 4200′ and dug a pit on a north facing slope. We didn’t notice any alarming signs as we traveled and we did a quick stability test before we stepped out into bigger terrain to check ourselves. Our test did not alter us to any obvious signs of failure. Winds were light with moderate gusts, but there wasn’t much soft snow on the ground to move around. Temperatures barely got warm enough to heat anything besides the steepest solar aspects, and we skied a mixed bag of surfaces including wind board, some dry facets, and breakable crust on the way down.
