Cold temperatures and broken skies today with increasing winds and snow flurries in the afternoon. A melt freeze warming crust from Friday lead to difficult skiing conditions on all aspects in the Maggie's Area. Moderate winds from the west at ridge tops was transporting very little snow due to the firm and crusty surface and not adding much to a winds lab problem at this elevation. Snow Profiles on a NE aspect at 5100ft identified a SH layer 85-90cm below the surface and just above the 1/13 crust. It was found to be generally unreactive in snow pack tests with the exception being a Deep Tap Hard result. SH grains were found to be intact but laying flat in the layer. Two settlements ( whumphs) were observed higher in the Maggie's area indicating that the snow pack is still responding to the load in this weeks storm and instabilities exist.
