WCMAC forecasters traveled through Crystal Amphitheater today. We found a thin and variable snowpack with 4-5 inches (10-12cm) of new snow overnight. Depending on the aspect, this new snow sits on a melt freeze crust on southerly aspects and a layer of near surface facets on northern and sheltered slopes. Our primary layers of concern moving forward are the buried near surface facets and buried surface hoar. Right now, there is not enough of a slab above these layers to allow for propagation or slab avalanches. As we move into this next storm, there is potential to build enough of a slab to support avalanches.
