Steve, Brett and I skied a run on Sunburst and found soft snow on the upper half and wind-effected snow on the lower half. We toured up to Taylor Pass, digging a pit along the way, and then skiing soft but firm snow back into Taylor Creek. On Magnum’s roadside aspect we found soft snow and old soft blocks of avalanche debris. At the parking lot we realized we forgot beverages for heat and dehydration management.
Springtime at Turnagain! Sunny, calm and warm.
Soft snow and windslab. Roadside it was dust on crust. Most of the windslab seemed to be several days old, or older. It didn't whoomph and I couldn't get it to avalanche in any ski cuts.
In a pit below Taylor Pass we found moderate strength, resistant planar energy and no propagation on two near-surface layers down 7cm and 35cm in the storm layers. Solid below that.
