NL Field Team
Travel in the hills was crusty and wind packed. It stayed colder up there then forecasted today, with overcast and flat light. A couple new size 1 slab avalanches on East facing slopes. They failed on top of the last significant rain crust, 20-60cm deep in the places we poked. We had consistent, moderate￼ Compression Test results, in our similar E facing pit, on this crust. Our test also showed a reactive 10cm surface slab, that was pretty touchy, but did not show much in the way of propagation, in this one pit. ￼Winds were picking up by mid day, and we were out early in the early afternoon. ￼
Snow conditions were: Crusty, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Mellow slopes. Riding quality was ok.
