Pretty nice day! Cool with a light breeze. Increasing clouds, but pockets of blue sky and good visibility.
I intentionally triggered 4 shallow soft wind slabs. NW 6100-6300ft SS-ASc-D1-R1-S. While these slides were small, the easily entrained the snow below and traveled several hundred feet down slope.
Wind: There was lots of evidence of wind transported snow from this weekend's strong SE wind event. Many normal cornice lines were eroded back to nubs, and large cornices and drift were found on more westerly aspects. Light blowing snow, sharp cornices, and subtle snow surface texturing were the best clues of to wind loaded features.
I also found several older hard wind slabs on W aspects from the weekend. These generally did not produce any significant cracking, but the firm hollow snow was all I needed to see to want to avoid them.
We found several inter-strom layers in the upper 35-40cm of the snowpack. They typically failed in tilt tests and compression tests. The 3/1 and 2/25 interfaces however, never failed significantly in any snowpack tests where we dug.
A thin crust from 3/5's sunny weather was found underneath the new snow on steep S aspect. It was very friable and generally not noticeable.
