Snowpack

Dug a quick pit once we got out of the bigger trees (south face). As I was digging the whole feature settled(First photo), did not observe any cracking and that was the only wumph of the day. Compression test did not show any results, but the column did fail at some point, just below where I dug down to. It was on an old crust/facet layer 110cm. Conditions changed from soft powder to very wind effected when we reached the alpine. (Second photo)
