Went to Blewett Pass today to see what came about after the recent 12/25 precip event. There were a couple of inches of new, low density snow over a decomposing crust, from the Tronsen Meadow trailhead to our high point of 5600 ft. In digging around at multiple locations on the north side of Diamond Head we found a layer of large (up to 2 mm) facets, 5-6 cm thick, about 30 cm down, directly above a soft slab (4 finger density).
We witnessed lots of active wind transport during the day and experienced gusts up to 35mph.
There are still lots of low coverage hazards to be found (trees, creeks, and rocks). Dang sharks.
