Three crusts in the bottom of snowpack, observed two layers joined by a column of ice(see pictures). Found facets on top of an upper crust at 15 down. Sheared very easily and suddenly (3-7 taps). Found a temperature difference on either side of the upper crust. The pictures show a two degree difference in about ten cm. I didn't get any results below 20cm. Extended Column went at 6 taps.
