Skied Taylor Lake and Panorama Ridge. Dug a pit in meadows at Taylor lake. See pic attached for more info. HS 156, 15cm moist F snow on top, 1F-4F DF and facets below, Feb 3 crust down 77cm with 2mm facets 5-10cm above and below it. Compression tests had 2 CTN results, and 1 CTM16 RP fracture down 79cm on the facets immediately below the Feb 3 crust. No natural Avalanche activity, cracks, or whoomphing observed. Spring conditions out there, crust forming on solar aspects. afternoon snow will stick to your skins, so bring skin wax (and sunscreen).
