Snowpack

We found a 20cm soft storm slab to be reactive to skier weight in a Rutschblock Test as well as ski cutting a road cutbank. RB2 (EB) down 20cms on stellers 2.0 We did not find any surface hoar where we dug but did find some when jumping on a snow mushroom. It was sz 8 and down 40cms, lying flat but still well pronounced. Snowpack felt right side up with the exception of a small layer of facets ontop the lower crust, this bottom 30cms of the snowpack was moist.
