Terrain: I traveled in the 1st Bowl, Miriam Creek, Gunsight Bowl, and Lower Gunsight areas. Primarily covering NE-S aspects in the near and below treeline zones.
Snowpack: 24hr snow total around 12" (HN24 30cm). HS: near 100" (245cm).
The new snow was light dry and right-side-up with increasing resistance to just above the New Years Day crust. Snowpack tests failed suddenly on decomposing fragments just above this crust, but large column test did not propagate.
I could not find the 12/29 surface hoard in this location.
12/21 Crust is still the most notable snowpack marker. In this location, it was 3' (95cm) below the snow surface.
Sunday was stormier than expected. Overcast skies. Very light snow fall. Moderate SW winds with light to moderate blowing snow. Visibility was generally band and limited observations,.
