Date of Observation: 04/10/2021
Name: Zach Guy and Eric Murrow
Zone: Northwest Mountains
Location: Upper Slate
Aspect: East, South East
Elevation: 9600 to 12500’
Avalanches: Nothing new.
Weather: Clear skies, mild temps, light ridgetop winds.
Snowpack: Nothing noteworthy. Good freeze overnight, surfaces started softening mid morning on easterly aspects. The top few inches were soft by noon. Found a few very steep or rocky terrain features late morning where the snowpack was weaker and mushier but ski cuts couldn’t get any wet sluffs moving. Snow now has dust on the surface and has developed some sun textures and runnels on sunnier aspects.
