Generally a nice cold day. Winds were only really noticeable on exposed ridgelines and wind-transported snow was minimal.
I was able to intentionally trigger 4 small (D1) loose dry avalanches on very steep (>40) NE-E facing slopes. One of these slides did propagate and produce a shallow (8in) soft slab. L-ASc-D1-R1-S x4. All of these slides ran to near the bottom of the paths.
Below Treeline: Snow depth (HS): 15-24in (40-60cm). About 10-15 in (25-40cm) is right-side-up storm snow since 11/22. The lower snowpack is very strong melt-forms from several rain events.
Near Treeline: Snow depths (HS) 28-40 in (65-100cm), about 13-18 in (35-45cm) is right-side-up storm snow since 11/22.
Storm snow interfaces exist, including a layer of graupel. However, failures were inconsistent.
11/22 Interface is a very stout but thin (1in, 3cm) rain crust.
The lower snowpack is a mix of melt-freeze crust, pockets of facets, and strong rounded grains.
Wind transport: Signs of wind-transported snow were evident. However, wind slabs were very soft and did not produce any avalanches. However, I was unable to travel to higher, more wind exposed, areas.
