Other Comments:
Evidence of strong north winds last few days. Dug on east at 7,600’. Several weak layers in the top 50cm but only only one broke in the ECT. Looked like well defined layer of preserved surface hoar. See photo. Good skiing in sheltered areas on recent new snow topped with surface hoar. Avoided steep open slopes.
