A quick trip up to the Tincan Common Bowl area on Wednesday afternoon to asses
the snowpack before Friday’s snow/rain event.
Cold and clear. Single digits with a just a few clouds moving in at ridgetop
level from the SE. Wind was light from the SE.
See VIDEO below as well as photos.
Above treeline – Snowpack ~16-24″ deep. Top 10+ inches very loose and faceted.
Bottom 12-14″ faceted with some older crust layers sandwiched in between.
Below treeline – Snowpack is ~10″ of very loose faceted snow over ground.
Significant wind effect at the mid elevations. Wind slabs/crusts are decomposing
with the cold/clear weather.
