More detailed information about the snowpack: 

I would describe this profile as right side up.  As we dug deeper the snow got more consolidated and stronger.

With 0 on the top

Surface Form MFcr, very thin.  Maybe 1/4 of a centimeter

Then 0.25 to 18 down was fist hard snow

18 to 42 wa 4f

Then 42 to 91 went 1f to p hard snow

at 91 down the rain crust started and it was thick!

30cm of pencil+ hardness rain crust!

CTN ECTN

Interesting we had more distinct results under the shovel of the ECT and not in the CT.
