Snowpack

We dug a hasty pit at 1920m elevation and observed the Dec. 4 rain crust 90cm down with a thickness of 1cm. The snowpack was mainly consisted of well bonded facets that had a 1 finger result when testing for density. We observed that the crust was well bonded and fractured inconsistently below when put under leverage.
