mid east Mt. Republic

Sort of ridiculous how little that snow has settled.! Did note though, that the ridgeline just above the pit location was dramatically wind affected (from west winds), which probably had something to do with the XL natural avalanche on the nearby Fin. (Also checked my notes from Jan. 4th, which reported widespread surface hoar in this area. Could be the culprit).

north bowl Abiathar

Surface snow in the bowl had widespread wind effect, from the recent NW winds (2" thick, supportable wind slab in many places). Also, pit location sees a fair bit of sluff/ avalanche debris, from the steep terrain above.
