Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Dug a pit on a NE aspect at 6500 ft.  Found some wind transported snow and some really nice hoar frost formations.  Our pit test resulted in an ECTN 11 15 cm down.  Although not a dramatic propagation, it was a small wind slab that failed ontop of the looser snow below it.  We did notice a few areas that have been affected quite a bit by the wind in the upper elevations.  Also some sun had affected the south facing slopes creating a very thin crust.
