Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Toured up from Twin Lakes to the summit. It was pretty windy, swirling from all directions until I gained the summit ridge, where there was a steady 30 ish mph SW wind. A lot of snow was moving around. I found very wind affected snow everywhere, with small stiff windslabs in spots. No instabilities were apparent.
