Snowpack: There's between 6 and 8" (15-20cm) of soft snow over the 12/09 crust where we traveled. This soft snow is made up of two storms (12/9-10 and 12/13-14). Between these two storms surface hoar formed. We continued to find it in the snowpack about 4" (10cm) above the very prominent 12/09 crust. The surface hoar is relatively small (3-6mm), but we found it on most aspects between 5700' and 6400'. Shovel Tilt Tests consistently proved to be the easiest way to find the SH since there is not yet a slab above.
The 12/09 crust is very strong and boot supportable.
Some wind redistribution of the snow at ridgecrest, but minimal drifting, and now sizable slabs observed.
Weather: Overcast with brief periods of broken skies. Very light snow showers most of the tour. Winds generally light out of the SW.
