Location: Main Bowl/Seattle Ridge

Route & General Observations

The total snowpack depth at this pit was 5 feet. I easily found
the buried surface hoar above sugary facets 4 feet down, but I
could not get it to fail in my stability tests. Only after
pounding on my shovel did I get a break at this layer. I dug a
pit at this same location on 11/21/08 and got much cleaner shears
and full propagations in an Extended Column Test (ECTP27Q2@45cm)
