Route & General Observations

Loose snow on top of loose snow on top of more loose snow. It’s deep out there. The top layer of snow
was more than a meter of soft 4 finger to fist snow. Boot penetration was 110cm. The 3 day storm
total was 85cm (33 inches) of light dry snow.

On an isolated column we could get the old snow interface to show itself with a compression test, but it
was a very insignificant shear in every way.

The photo shows the weekend storm total with my lower hand at the new/old interface.
