Skined around the west side of Tincan at the bottom of the trees. Snow was heavy and wind drifted with variable depths. At the 1500 to 1600 ft level we traversed a approx 30 degree slope exposed more to the wind. Most of the way across we encountered shooting cracks in fornt and arcing up above us. Area had much more wind slab than most slopes.
Mild temps i the high 20s with windy conditions S/SE at most elevations. Occasional flurries. About 3 to 5 inches of snow had fallen over the last 2 days.
Wind slab and wind densified snow.
Had done a hand earlier with no results
