Tincan uptrack to 2500′
Broken skies, isolated very light rain showers, light to moderate winds, temps in the high 20’s to low
Obvious Sign of Instability:
Recent Avalanches: Small debri piles at the base of CFR ridge.
1000-2000′: Saturated snow in the top 10 cm.
2000-2300′: Ice glaze over wet snow.
2300-2500′: Thin layer of melted snow over rounds.
Below the Surface:
I only dug in at 2500′ where I have been tracking the buried near surface facets since 2/13/15. Today
there were multiple layers of rounds, melted grains, and melt freeze crusts in upper snowpack. Slab
depth varied from 40cm to 65cm. The buried near surface facet layer at 40-65 cm deep was 10-
13cm thick and mostly four finger hardness.
Pits 1-5 @ 2500′:
Slope angle: 20-24*
