Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Snow pack depth 145cm. Signs of avalanche debris in lower Mendenhall, Airport chutes, Old mans bowl, and Mini morrison. Looks like a lot of movement during the storm. Skinning up I could feel a breakable crust below 25cm of fresh snow. Dug one put in the lumps before Old Mans Bowl on a N-NW aspect. ECTN and while there were many interesting layers I couldnt get anything to propagate across the column. Signs of roller balls on lower Southernly aspects above convict lake in the afternoon.
