Weather: Cold, clear, winds out of the northwest?, witnessed snow being transported off ridges on Axtell, tho winds were moderate on the summit of Emmons.
Snowpack: Collapsing and whoomphing when poking around off the skin track on the ridge, successfully triggering one r1d1 on NE aspect. Large long crack in the cornice where you first attain the ridge, tried unsuccessfully to trigger it by throwing rocks on it. Southern snow in the glades felt supportive. Down low some zipper crusts had formed from yesterday’s sun.
