Name: Evan Ross
Aspect: North East, East, South, South West
Elevation: Mostly BTL/NTL
Avalanches: No avalanche problems observed
Weather: Broken skys or partly cloudy to mostly cloudy during the day. Still strong solar/warming snow surfaces and warm temps. Was at ridgeline only for about 20min and winds were light from the south to southwest.
Snowpack: Snow surfaces are highly variable through terrain and across slopes. The most concerning surfaces where on sheltered shady slopes that had near surface facets. Otherwise snow surfaces range from wind packed to some forms of ice lens, or melt form. Many of these surfaces are also wind rippled. See pictures for more details.
