Cloudy with sun breaks, felt warmer than Baker telemetry indicated. Sun is strong enough now to initiate heat related instabilities in new snow shortly after initial sun exposure.
A few small wind slabs high on the east aspect of Table likely triggered mid-storm on Friday (crowns, bed surface and debris all partially filled in). Small heat triggered loose snow avalanches and rollerballs, pinwheels observed on SE and S aspects NTL
New snow is overall right side up F at the surface to 1F near 2/29 crust down 30cm in sheltered terrain. New snow appears well bonded to crust, minor sluffing in very steep terrain. No slab instabilities were noted with test slopes, hand pits, and other informal tests in wind sheltered terrain. Wind loaded slopes were observed to have more, but subtle, density breaks in new snow layers. Isolated but deep cracking in very steep terrain, generally SE-NE facing slopes just below ridgeline when transitioning from NTL to ATL. Large column test in a very wind loaded location (E @ 5600') produced ECTN's in new snow layers, CTM-SP down 62cm in slightly weaker snow below 2/19 crust. Tilt test, shears, produced easy results in new snow layers. No results around V-day crust.
