The 2" of new snow was mainly all that is available for transport- although it was minimally wind affected where we traveled.
Two inches of low density snow overlying a rain crust was found in most areas that we traveled. The semi-breakable crust beneath the new snow from 11/25 meant travel was very challenging on skis from ~5500ft down to pass level. The new snow was generally well bonded to the underlying crust. We were easily able to do quick pole-pits down to the ground throughout the day, discovering that most locations and layers were moist in the many quick holes we made. We also dug 2 full pits. Marginal skiing encouraged many pits. Nice day out nonetheless. Snow heights ranged from 1 1/2 to 3ft at 5000-5700ft. We searched for weak, faceted snow in areas beneath the 11/22 crust in that elevation range and were unable to find any well-developed weak layers that were still intact, as many were moist and/or rounding.
