Observation: Turnagain

Location: Seattle flats, above power line

Route & General Observations

We rode North on the power line. No Recent avalanches observed but we saw large glide cracks on the front side and some moderate to strong winds on the ridges. We dug a test pit on a East aspect at 982′, on a 5 degree slope. Scattered clouds, calm winds at that elevation, and no precip. In our pit we found facets above and below a rain crust around 40cms down. Our pit results had a ECTN11.
