Route & General Observations

Toured around Lipps trees, accessing from N side of the road towards S.

Navigation extremely hard due to still poor coverage on alders, low density snow while breaking trail.

Didn’t observe above treeline, as we didn’t get to the alpine.

Wind transport was the main red flag today for higher elevations.

Found a layer of concern @ 55 cms below surface. On facets.
Low propagation potency.
Poor structure.
