Wind skins are starting to form. I triggered one this afternoon. Crown depth was between 2”-6” , width 400ish feet, ran a similar distance (400ish feet) Consistent winds this afternoon turned us away from the high alpine. Expected this spot to pop. As it was actively wind loading. Was not expecting it to propagate so far down the ridge. Estimated size D.5-D1 A good indicator things will be a bit sensitive this weekend. Otherwise great skiing the past couple days.

Skied North and West aspects in the port up to 2800 feet. There was a fair bit of collapsing in the flats. I dug a pit at 1800 feet on a North aspect. The slope angle was 31 degrees and the snowpack depth was 180 cm. The storm snow had settled to 45 cms. On a compression test the snow was reacting at a density change within the new snow at 30 cms, CT 21 Q3. There was also a layer at 60 cms that would react, but only with a lot of pressure. CT26 Q2. Winds were moderate out of the East on ridgecrests.

Road run slid on us all day. One foot of fresh on rock hard ice. No wonder no one ever posts anything, you got to be a genius to figure this site out.
