Clear and sunny but still cool temperatures for March. Light to moderate SE wind at ridgeline, light wind transport observed onto N'ly aspects. Stayed cool enough that lower elevation S'ly aspects were just starting to produce rollers at noon. Also left the field at that time . . . .
A smattering of wet loose, dry loose and slab avalanches to D2 on all aspects and at most elevations. A majority seemed human triggered and related to new snow warming over the weekend. A few larger naturals (from during the last storm) were visible looking towards Baker.
Surface is a mix of faceting new snow and surface hoar. All aspects around Bagely had a soft temp/sun crust below the top few cm's of new snow. Crust started to become less pronounced above 5500' on all aspects.
A total of 30-40cm HST over 3/23 crust, which was also found on all aspects. HST is slightly upside down w/ 1F over 4F+. Looked for NSF's on 3/23 but found only traces in one pit. P hard layer of rounds below 3/23. No results on test slopes, shears, etc.
