Went out to take a look at the snow pack. Seemed to be about 35cm of nice snow sitting on top of a crust with facets on either side. Preformed a few compression tests but received mixed results. Two consistent failures at 35 cm and 55cm but no popping. Lots of precip, with a mix of snow and hail balls.
