More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Layer was very reactive, but not clean. Q3 on near surface facets above the rain crust. Lower 2 failures from the CT were on buried surface hoar, both Q1. Could get 3-4 ft cracks when walking above the skin track.  South side warmed up enough today to get a slight sun crust in the openings.
