Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Was curious what the snowpack was looking like before another series of storms.  I observed small 1mm surface hoar in N/NE aspect ~8800' elev.  HS 170.  CT test was interesting, it didn't fail on the graupel layer I thought it would, instead a buried surface hoar layer around ~88cm depth.  CTM14, SC Q1.
