From snowpit at 3130' on a northeast aspect (total depth 265 cm):
We were able to find a layer of surface hoar about 18" down, which was unreactive in stability tests and stubborn to pry out of the pit with a shovel. Test results:
ECTN12 down 20 cm at the new/old interface. Assuming this new snow includes everything we have gotten since the wind event Saturday afternoon/evening.
ECTN24 down 30 cm below a 1F wind slab (likely from the 3/27 winds).
ECTN34 (4 stout 'bonus taps') on a layer of buried surface hoar 45 cm down.
More snowpack info in attached snowpit profile.
Our key takehomes were (1) the soft snow at the surface was easy to get moving on steep slopes, (2) the 3/9 surface hoar layer is still present, although stubborn, and (3) the sun is having a strong effect on the solar aspects, but it has not been warm enough yet to see any signs of melting on the northerly aspects.
