Ski cut on small NNE test slope produced cracking but not much propagation. Other pit data: 20191206 1520, 9900', 345*NW, HS 57cm, ECTP 16 @33cm down failing on FCxr 1-2mm above K MFcr. The FC layer is thin and hard to identify, especially with so much garbage to look at below it, but will be quite problematic with a load. Slab is 1F above interface, and ski pen only averaged 15cm. Concerned with MFcr bridging DH below, and not allowing the basal layers to start to get squashed.
Observed Avalanche Problem #1:
Problem exists where Oct snow persisted. I dug in 3 locations between 9340 and 9900 on WNW and NW and the 1cm FC layer above the MFcr existed in all locations down 25-35cm
