No fresh wind slabs where we traveled, and the snowpack probably needs a fresh wind load to be unstable at this elevation in Croy Canyon.
Winds moved some of the new snow around, but not many new slabs. There is still a decent amount of snow available for transport.
Obs submitted on a phone - sorry in advance about typos.
Surface = .3-.5cm SH from last night/early this morning, fairly widespread.
S-SW = almost corn on a firm, supportable crust
Under the new snow:
NW-N-NE = no solar crusts but variable wind affect at the top of the old snow (sastrugi, wind board, wind slab, wind crusts, some places just FC)
W, E, SE = breakable crusts +FC, stiffer crusts as you move south from west or east
We skied 305* (just W of NW), and it had a tolerable razor crust under the new snow.
We planned to avoid wind-loaded slopes steeper than 35*. We skied slopes around 35* with no fresh, stiff wind loading.
