We saw large cornices on ridgelines in the Blewett Pass area such as this one by Tronsen Head. We saw what appeared to be recent avalanche debris on this ridgeline- possibly a wind slab that released, but we were too far away to really see.
We dug snow pits to the ground level at about 5260’ on a southwest facing slope and did tests but couldn’t get any results (nothing sheared off or propagated). We saw the 2/1 crust and melt/ freeze snow forms in the lowest layers. The snowpack was only about 100cm deep where we dug these pits.
We later dig a pit on a somewhat higher slope -5930’ - that was north facing and found the facets predicted in the forecast.
