Dug a quick pit at 1200m north aspect near the bottom of the Big Kahuna. Found the rain crust 80cm down, amazingly non-reactive on ect. Smashed on the column another handful of times and it still wouldn’t go. Found the snow quite variable on the way up, mostly going between nice powder to a 1-2 cm wind zip forming on top. Skid well, legs tired.

Avalache Conditions: 30cm + of new snow, or significant drifitng, or rain in the last 48 hours.
