Route & General Observations

Went on a tour out of curiosity. Skinned up Marmot for the Fishhook parking lot. Light breeze (less than 5mph). Extremely flat light

Weather & Snow Characteristics
Please provide details to help us determine the weather and snowpack during the time this observation took place.

Overcast, clam winds around 5mph at 3000 ft. Didn't bother going to the ridge--the light was awful. 18° F

Snow surface

12cm of snow from the last storm. I excepted to find more wind effect, but was wrong. Snow was soft and made for good riding.


Dug a pit and found good structure, moderate strength, and no propagation.
