Weather: Storm total from the last 48hrs as of 630am @ 9300′-about 4 and a quarter inches. Snowfall on 2/16 was intermittent with more intense periods after 4pm. Kind of partly cloudy this morning. Not snowing currently.

Snowpack: Toured up to about 10600′ yesterday. No signs of instability. Crust from the middle of last week on southernmost aspects was supportable to skiers, becoming breakable as you wrap around to the west. Due west aspects are slabby and supportable, especially at higher elevations, becoming facety as you wrap further to the north. Most of the aspects we skied were only intermittently supportable below about 9800 or 10000 ft.
