General Observations

Lutak Zone: Above 4,000' evidence of prior warm temps on steep solar S-E aspects with point release and loose slides. NE aspects had evidence of wind loading and textured snow. W aspect above 4,500' had moderate ECT results with no propagation in the upper 20-30cm of the snowpack. N-NW aspects were right-side-up with a mix of wind pack and powder. The hard re-freeze Friday locked up much of the upper snowpack on S-E aspects which made for not quite spring conditions.
