General Observations

Beautiful day at the Canwell Glacier. Skied to the toe of the glacier via miller creek – about 2 miles in and observed variable snow depths depending on aspect. There was 5-10cm snow above a thin melt-freeze crust and mostly facets to the ground below that. We heard some whoomph noises in the flats. We did not do a pit assessment but stayed at the base of the glacier.
