Super windy in the drainage, as expected up high as well. The wind and new snow has definitely covered up the boulders and alder, but lots of holes to be found while breaking trail. Dug a pit to refresh our memories for our first day out. Very consistent results on the nov22 surface hoar layer at about ECTP 12 (40cm) The nov 8th rain crust seems to have bonded well
