Our class dug several pits on @ 2200-2400' E/SE aspects on 14-23 degree slopes. Here are correlations of our results:
Structure: Right side up snow until we hit the 2 crust layers ~40-50cms from ground where we had 4F results above and within the crust combo. Then subtle upside down snow hardness to the ground. Basal facet layer was thinner and moist.
Strength: Shovel Shear and CT results had some failures on a buried surface hoar layer down 15-40cm. CT results we as follows: CTV, CTX, CT25 50cm down, CT12 Q1 down 30cm.
Propagation Propensity: ECT results were ECTN26 40cm down, ECTP23 40cm down, ECTP20-27 40cm down and several ECTX's
Overall the results suggested a BSH in the upper snowpack. We did not get any shearing around or in the crust combo.
