Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

We observed 1-2" of new snow on top of the 6-8" from yesterday and a few inches of windloading immediately below the ridge top and on the W lip of the NE gully/face. We did not observe any avalanche activity. The snow was very light and didn't display any slabby characteristics, even in the wind deposited snow. Skiing was dust on top of a supportable, edgeable crust. Ski crampons were useful breaking trail.
