1/16: Dimond up to 3100′, 5° F at the road, -10° F at 3100′. Clear, no precip, moderate- strong east wind above 2500′, light- moderate snow transport. Localized collapsing, Small shooting cracks around skis, not radiating, no new avalanches.
Above 2000′ found a variety of wind affected snow that ranged from snow stripped down to rain crust, 1 foot tall 1 finger to pencil hard sastrugi and pencil hard wind slabs. Wind slabs were not reactive to ski cuts on test slopes.
Dug a pit at 3100′ on a north slope that wind was blowing across and building some wind slab, but mostly scouring. Wind slab at pit site was 15 cms deep and 1 finger to pencil hard. In close proximity on a lee slope “west”, in a cross loaded gully found wind slab to be 70 cms deep and pencil to knife hard.
