More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Went to just have a look around, all car based. Got a huge wumphf while skiing the road in the Four Jeffrey Campground, must have settled 200' of snow around me. Up at the parking spot for the Sabrina road, with 14 - 18" of extremely wind affected snow, I got crack propagation exceeding 100' (photo). Going up there W Inyo SAR tomorrow, will get some formal info then.
