Broadly, see yesterday's Sunburst ob as we saw the same wind effect from last week here today as well... with slightly more new snow covering it up.
After probing at the ridgeline - where 320+cm of snow was present - found a pit location to the north of the ridgeline by about 75'. In the vicinity of the pit, the height of snow was 80 - 120cm, with the New Years Crust just 40-50cm down from the surface. While we didn't probe the entirety of this lower angle, generally wind scoured feature, this pit was dug in a larger area of thin snowpack than we found at Pete's North or Tincan in the past two weeks. The pit featured 'summit-area-like' facets that failed in compression tests with a large noticeable drop of the block.
In addition, this pit also had a different structure surrounding the 1/25 crust than I've seen in other recent Turnagain Pass or even Summit/Girdwood pits. The crust appeared to be thicker here than elsewhere, though today it's breaking down and was quite fragile. It was surrounded by a thin (~1cm) layer of four finger hardness .5mm facets, with stout layers of wind packed particles above and below it. The crust was buried shallower here than in other pits on the pass, only 25cm down from the surface. Test results, pit structure, and facet photos below!
Overall, interesting structure with two layers of persistent grains less than a meter from the surface on a thin north aspect.
