Mostly obscured skies with minimal visibility for the morning. Winds were mostly out of the NW, but variable across the terrain. As we were field the skies started to break and the sun made an unexpected appearance.
No new avalanches were observed, but visibility was poor.
Wind: We found pockets of wind drifted snow up to 8-10" (20-25cm) thick on a variety of aspects. Small slopes produced some cracking, but we could not get any slabs to fail on slightly larger test slopes.
Sun: When the sun made an appearance, many steep southerly slopes produced a barrage of rollerballs, some of them 2ft in diameter. There were also a few very small loose wet slides, but they were inconsequential.
Upper Snowpack: The 2/17 and 2/13 layers are still visible. We didn't find any significant weak grains at either interface.
