New Snow: No New Snow
SPX: this zone is still very shallow and it was hard to find more than 100cm of snow in the limited areas we travel. Snow depths varied from ~75cm to ~100cm. Widespread surface hoar had formed in most areas. Our 2 Primary concerns were a buried surface hoar laver 19-27cm down and facets and depth hoar down 50-70cm. The lower elevation (6800′) slopes had more prominent crust layers. There, the upper failure was on surface hoar below a crust.
