Observation Date: 01/15/2018

Skinned into the crystal theater. Very poor snow quality on southern aspects with a stout breakable crust. Found high density powder above 5500 ft and on northerly aspects.

Pit test on NE facing slope @ 6300 ft. CT showed multiple layers in the new snow with the new snow well bonded to the crust. And no buried surface hoar. These layers did not propagate in an ECT. We did observe surface hoar in this location.

Cloudy all day. Temps ranged from 32-35.
