Primary objective was a visit to the weather station on top of Peak 2. Obs were en route to and from the weather station in the mid-afternoon.
Calm to light winds blowing out of the NW on top of Peak 2, with clear skies and relatively cool temperatures.
No recent avalanches observed.
Experienced one notable rolling collapse at 9,000' on a low angle E aspect while skinning. I could see the collapsing front travel out 20-25m from where I triggered it. This occurred where the snowpack was a bit thinner (70-90cm) and where the surficial crust had broken down substantially. In many other areas, the surficial crust had broken down on lower and many middle elevation solars by mid-afternoon, but was still ski and mostly boot supportable at upper elevations. I rode my sled to ~8,500', so observations up to this point were pretty run-and-gun.
