Pretty mellow day in Bean Creek Basin. The snow was wet and heavy down low, but we found some reasonably fun turns from about 6500ft-6000ft on the South East aspect of Mary's Peak and the East aspect of the south ridge of Mary's Peak. Tops of the ridges were pretty wind scoured and the gullies were starting to fill in. We dug a practice pit at 6300ft on the East aspect of the south ridge. We found a right-side up snowpack of about 59cm (previous wind loading) with some obvious layers at 54cm and 47cm. Snow was non reactive to a compression test.
Lots of sharks out here and there, early season for sure.
