Skied out Sand Canyon Road to Witcher Creek. Dug hasty pit (photo): Snow depth 35cm: 6cm soft slab, then F  to 4F to 1F at ground level.  Right-up snowpack without evidence of buried sugar snow at this location. The road was crusted with sno-mo tracks but skiing off-road was pleasant spring-like corn with 2cm ski penetration. Evidence of wind sculpting (photo) with soft snow deposits in low spots. Snow is melting fast south of here with Round Valley looking almost dry today. :-(
