Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Contemplated the Negatives from June Mountain but cool temperatures and light northwesterly winds kept the snow firm throughout the day above 9000'. Decided to see how much the snow had transformed on southerly aspects. Encountered wannabe corn from 10,100 to ~9700, then corn below. Getting soft (15cm) at 9200' by 1:00. Ascended back to the ski area summit, still hadn't thawed on North to Northeast aspects at 300 pm above 9200'. 

A trace of new snow throughout the area. No real accumulation from the previous night's storm (Sunday) but it brought in much cool air. No new avalanches noted in the surrounding terrain.
