Surface was wind effected where exposed, especially above treeline
See Snowpilot for testpit profile and detailed results.
Overall our tests showed poor structure but good to fair stability. Our layer of concern was January facets.
The snow depth ranged from 70cm-135cm (at our high point of 2600')
Multiple hand shears consistently indicated the top of the January facets ↓30-40cm from the surface at Fist hardness. The snow just above these facets was 1F hardness in all locations.
We found the "Leap day" buried surface hoar ↓15cm in many wind protected locations, including our testpit. The BSH was surrounded by Fist hard decomposing fragments and nonreactive in tests.
No sign of the melt freeze crust from 2/18.
Non wind-exposed areas held good quality skiing
