Observation Date: 12/19/2020
3″ of new, moderates winds and continued snowfall
Moderate out of the west
New Snow: 0-3″
Very touchy conditions today warranted extreme caution. Skiing across the flats, as soon as I skied out of pre-existing skin track could feel myself sinking in the extremely week snowpack. On slope, whumfing was constant with every other step. Cracks and collapsing were about 100′ long and propagated up slope and all around me.
I was the first one of the day up and got off of it quickly before anyone else came up.
