Traveled up from 900ft to 3300ft up the Taylor Creek drainage to Taylor Pass.
Cloudy, some sun breaks, with calm winds
Temperatures in the low to mid 20s F
No signs of instability
At all elevations there is around 5cm of new snow on top of a supportable melt-freeze crust.
“Antitracks” are still visible in most areas.
We dug a couple pits at 3300ft on a SW aspect near Taylor Pass. (see photo)
There is 5cm of new snow on a melt freeze crust. Under the surface crust the upper 20cm of the
snowpack has a couple crusts with weak F to 4F snow in between. Under the crust sandwich there is
25cm of old, P hard, February snow sitting on top of the late January melt-freeze crust.
Dust on crust, decent skiing in places that haven’t previously seen a lot of traffic.
