Decent corn snow on Parker Ridge, about 20 cm of depth hoar beneath a very solid 60 cm crust. In the morning the top snow was a bit of a wind crust but it got softened up nicely by the sun throughout the day, wind started to pick up on top of a forming sun crust by around 2pm. Many other skiers out today, no signs of instability, but we were still mindful of rock outcroppings, as the persistent layer is still alive and well.
