General Observations

Skinned in and camped at the toe of the Castner glacier.  Snow conditions and depths varied depending on aspect/location.  Generally, there was about 4 inches of powder covering a harder layer of wind blown slab.  The slab was easily breakable making travel without skis/snowshoes challenging.  The base was mostly faceted snow.  Temps ranged from 22F in the sun to -5F at night.  We did not dig any pits.
