Toured Sunnyside uptrack to check out how the snowpack is finally developing into something.
Beautiful sunny, cold and calm day. Felt like winter, woop woop.
Air temp -8C. No precipitation or wind.
2mm graupel from road to ridgeline.
Variable crust at the upper part of snowpack impacting travel especially below 2000'.
Ski quality above 2000' very good.
@Parking lot: HS 10cm. 2cm meltfreeze crust covered by 2cm of new snow.
@ 2000': HS 60cm. Started to lose the crust; more soft snow on top.
@ 2500': HS 90cm. Dug a pit next to the skin track. Top snowpack consisted of 20cm of soft new snow and another 38cm of 1F rounds above numerous meltfreeze crusts. ECTP20BRK @30cm below a meltfreeze crust. Did not find Nov 23 buried surface hoar in our pit location. See pit graph.
