Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

 

Found good north facing powder today up Lundy. Still pretty shallow cover. Hit several rocks on the way down. Wanted to check on bonding of new snow to old snow. Did some handshear tests. Handshears failed with easy to moderate force. These tests failed below a 3 cm P-hard crust that was the old, pre-storm snow surface. 45 cm F- hard new, slightly wind affected snow on 3cm P hard crust failed on 4 F snow below the crust.
