Quick trip into Lynx Creek to check on the new snow amounts, how the new snow was bonding and if we could find any other weak layers in the pack.
Snow was falling roughly 1"/hour. Winds were light and seemed to be light on the ridgelines as well. Temperatures were cool, in the mid 20'sF from sea level to 1,700'.
8" of new snow from the early morning hours till around 4pm when we exited the area. This was VERY low density and light. No slab was forming in the loose new snow. At 1,700', our high point, a 1" soft crust exists under the storm snow. It was hard to assess bonding due to the light nature of the new snow. Sluffs would have been very easy to initiate.
We dug around 3' down and could not find any layers of concern.
