Utah Avalanche Center
Just above Snotel site. Did not dig to ground. ECT - no results
Periods of very heavy snow. This pit near area where I triggered a storm slab on Monday that ran on the 2/10 rain-crust. Facets now 90 cm deep, rounding, and layer is much better bonded
I intentionally triggered a small storm slab on a very steep slope at 8300'. It failed on small faceted grains and ran on the thick 2/10 rain-crust.
Biggest concern is the wet melt form crystals from 273-250 cm. Very weak layer. Did not produce results in stability tests. It should gradually refreeze.
