Snowpack: We toured past the Coney’s Ski area and got multiple shooting cracks and collapses on steeper terrain features, upper 20 degree features and even a couple in flat areas. All of these areas had not seen much traffic (probably none) this season. Still feels tender out there! HS ranged from 70cm to 85cm in areas probed.
