Went for a little romp in the June Backcountry and surface conditions were soft in the sheltered areas. As we moved up out of the trees the wind had textured the surface. Overall coverage is good and its looking like a great start to winter.
Basal Facets were present at 9600 feet on the Apron of the Negatives. These were down 145 centimeters and were 20 centimeters thick. Total snow Depth(HS) was 165 cm.
Signs of Unstable Snow
Observed Avalanche Problem #1:
D2.5 R3 Though the likelihood of triggering these is decreasing, the structure still exists and an avalanche on these layers would have significant consequences.
Observed Avalanche Problem #2:
Less transport was observed today than was expected. So windslabs were likely small and isolated.
