Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Numerous small wet loose slides observed throughout the region (D 0.5-1). Most appear to have occurred yesterday (5/23) although some (Kuna Crest area) appear to have occurred mid-storm. At approx 11k' below Kuna Crest I observed approx 2-3" of new settled snow where there was previously snow cover (which is not a lot of places). The new snow appears to very much want to slough off right now but the slides all looked pretty small, although I guess if there was some wind deposits they could be larger.

While many higher elevation chutes and cirques have plenty of snow remaining to ski, the approaches are mostly dry and/or patchy.

Thank you to Josh, Steve, Chris and the ESAC board for another great year. See y'all in the fall.
