Snow surface

The warmer temps had definitely consolidated the new snow making it ski like a soft cream cheese. We topped out at 2000' right where we were beginning to feel some wind effects from the night before just subtly below the new dusting.


Dug 4 pits at 2000' on a NW aspect, 20 degree slope with HS ranging from 170-190. No notable results, same poor structure of facets over Halloween crust with a tiny stellar layer about 35 down. See snowpit profile.
