Found great early season conditions with the bottom 100 cm of dense snow protecting many early season hazards. The top 20 cm was low density and ranged from unconsolidated to very soft slab and provided great ski quality. The crust was only felt when skiing steeper slopes. I dug a pit to (1) see how the new snow was bonding to the crust and (2) identify any deeper layers that had survived the rain. I did find 5 cm of 1F snow at 60-65 cm but this layer did not yield any results from a compression test.
- A small about of graupel fell around 1 pm
- The sky cleared partially in the afternoon but I did not notice the new snow consolidate as a result
- Did not hit a single rock!
