Snowpack

On a CT test, we had an uneven break/failure 30cm down on what seemed to be storm snow, on 4th hit from the elbow. The storm snow was soft and did not seem to have any slab like properties yet. We found a crust on top of facets at 60cm down but it did not react in our test. We had a failure on the base facets (130cm down) on 6 from the shoulder.
