Weather & Snow Characteristics
Please provide details to help us determine the weather and snowpack during the time this observation took place.

Sunny both days with calm winds the first day and light to moderate wind the second.

Snow surface

Few inches of soft snow on top of wind packed in most places with patches of wind scoured in places especially on day two.


Didn't dig into the snow pack but hit many roll overs, short steep hills and other common trigger points with sleds and got no reactivity either day. No red flags or signs of instability while skinning or skiing either.
