Somewhat of a combover at treeline at Hudson Bay mountain today! Significant wind drift development on southerly aspects, which was reactive to ski cutting down ~20 cm on S/SE test slopes. In the pit, this same cohesive wind layer (pencil hard slab) fractured with column isolation but no further test results were observed (CT + ECT). Significant temp gradient setting up near surface too (>5°C / 10 cm).
