We were doing our AST2. Dug a pit for a compression test and found that column to be unreactive. The solar warming led to a number of small slides off the sun and cornices of Disease Ridge.

Snow conditions were: Powder, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.

Snowpack

Did a compression test and after multiple attempts did not get a consistent failure. There was a freeze layer at depth of 65 cm. Generally the snow pack increased in density with depth.
