Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Lots of surface hoar growing in the shaded area.  Didn't seem to take much wind to have it knocked down, but where it was sheltered it was up to 2cm in size.  Widespread.

Moon pass snowmobiled well.  Didn't really start hitting enough snow to cool the sleds until around 5000'. Very open south sides still had sharks showing up that high.
