Occasional light variable breezes were noticed. Scattered skies with valley fog in the morning shifted to a rising cloud line sitting at 5000-600ft in the afternoon and obscured skies were present in that elevation band.
All areas above ~5000ft were heavily wind affected, with a stout ~10cm crust present at the surface in some areas, but covered by on average up to 20cm in other areas. Occasional low density snow pockets were found.
In 3 pits we found numerous crusts with subtle weak layers by some of the crusts. One of the 3 pits got CTM SP beneath the thick top crust in a faceted layer, and ECTN on that layer. We didn't get any results in the other pits. Overall, aside from the thin slightly softer layers near the knife hard crusts, many of the layers were varying amounts of pencil hard.
We saw one small human triggered wind slab avalanche which likely occurred yesterday 2/14. One other very small cornice triggered avalanche may have occurred yesterday as well. Those were the only avalanches we saw. No cracking or collapsing or other red flags were present.
