Weather: BKN moved to OVC with S-1 snow showers late afternoon. no accumulation. temperartures 20-28F. Mostly calm.
Snowpack: I dug 12 full profiles today for a CU researcher BTL snodgrass, N-E aspects. No stability tests as I was collecting density data in treed terrain, but still same poor structure, P-hard slab above 20-40cm 2-4mm F+ DH. has improved a bit from same locations dug 1 month ago, F- DH then, compared to F+ DH now, but still weak, and stiffer slab. General HS in areas dug between 11, 200 and 10,000 was 90-130cm.
