4f finger rounding facets between 80-76 are weak and will not support much additional weight. Heads up as this next storm approaches. Facets were much weaker higher up on the slope in the starting zone. CTM 12 Q2 at pit dug higher on slope.


Unsure how to score the ECT at 95 cm. It initially broke under the shovel around 7 taps. Subsequent taps caused it to propagate. Probably this is an ECTN, but it caught my attention and I wasn't going to ignore the fact that it seemed to want to propagate. The layer of snow from 95 to 100 cm was mostly broken new snow particles but they did have some faceting.
