Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

-NE winds resulting in visible wind transport mid to late morning over ridgetops from Bloody Mtn thru the Mammoth Crest.  Some snow transport also visible mid-slope in the alpine on northerly aspects.  Fairly continuous snow transport seen across slope about 500' below the ridgeline from Hammill Bowl to TJ Bowl (SE blowing to the NW) potentially loading the climbers left side of TJ Bowl.

See attached video of Bloody Mtn: Snow being stripped from the north couloir, but also loading the WNW facing slope just below the ridgeline.   Be careful of isolated pockets of fresh sensitive windslab!
