The skies were mostly sunny with some increasing clouds around 2pm. You could see lenticulars on Mt Adams and higher peaks in the Goat Rocks Wilderness. Temperatures were warm and well above freezing. Winds were very light, then increasing after 12pm.
No new avalanches were observed.
Below Treeline: Snow depth (HS) 12-24" (30-60cm). The snowpack has not frozen recently. Wet weak large grain meltforms were found throughout the entire snowpack. Occasional thin ice lenses were seen.
Neat Treeline: Snow depth (HS) 4-5' (110-150cm). About an inch or two of softened spring (MF) snow was found on the surface sitting on top of a 4-6" (10-15cm) melt-freeze crust. The upper 1-1.5' (30-45cm) of the snowpack was layers of frozen and wet melt forms (MFpc and MFcr). The mid and lower snowpack are very strong and well settled. Mainly frozen melt forms and strong rounded grains.
No layers of concern were noted in this area.
We tried to trigger roller balls on very steep sunny slopes, but could not. We also exited the field before the peak warming of the day.
