Went up NRC to build a snowpit, went down by the trees and the bottom of the gully, riding was good !
Did a few compression test at 1650 on the west facing slope of NRC. Failure would happen down 70 cm on the early feb crust with elbow to shoulder taps (CTM to CTH). This early feb crust was surrounded by 20 cm of facets. Tried a column test, could get it to fracture after 30 hits.
