2 ice layers showing in the snowpack. One sun crust about 40cm from the surface was causing results in our CT end ECT test, along with the rain crust from oct/nov about 40cm from the base of the snowpack. 5cm ski pen. Surface Hoar growth was observed. No signs of avalanches, cracking or woomfing in our zone today. Another group did get results with a ski cut and observed a crown on Breccia. The Snowpack was overall more stable than expected. Layer of concern will be the areas above and below the most recent crust on this aspect.
Pit dug in a small/clear zone with no dead wood on the ground within a YNP 2007 fire. Snowpack on slope had just recently buried the majority of the downed timber. Skied slope 3x.
Skied thick trees adjacent to open slope to lower angle meadow, old tracks in the middle of avalanche path.
