Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Too cold to dig pits, sorry, but lots of thin layers in the pack. Upper boot cuff to knee deep breaking trail to keep a guy warm. Wind slab was worse as I approached ridges, but hidden under a couple inches of fluff. I think the wind layers would have been worse had the moisture content not been so low. There's a layer left by the wind that ocurred between the last two snow events that's a foot or so down that was a ski tip sucker. Snow was sticky cold for first 200-300' off the ridges, then waist deep in the turns. Lots of sloughing while skiing. If these multiple thin layers stiffen up with the coming temperatures, I could definitely see slab avalanches getting reactive. Should be an interesting week up high!
