Mostly clear in the morning becoming overcast to obscured. Temperatures were very mild, but the breeze kept conditions feeling chilly. Occasional very light snow showers but no accumulation while I was in the field.
No new avalanches.
You can still see debris piles in Gunsight, 2nd Bowl Chutes, 2nd Bowl, and 3rd Bowl. Many of the lower steep benches down to Miriam Lake also have debris on them. These are mostly from the Feb 28 cycle.
S: Only the 1-2" of snow sits over the very thick and stout early march crust. This made for slick travel.
N: A similar snowpack structure to other areas in the west south.
-3/12 crust below the new 1-2" of snow. This crust is breakable and less than an inch thick (1-2cm).
-3/8 Facets: a layer of facets about 2-3" (5-8cm) thick sit over the early march crust. In some locations these facets showed signs of rounding.
-Early March Crust: this very thick (9-10" 20-25cm) and strong (K hard) crust is a great snowpack marker and found everywhere.
You can also still see deeper layers in the snowpack like the Valentine's Crust.
Very shallow and isolated wind loaded pockets were observed. These were not large enough to pose a risk.
