Early season layers on Mt. Blackmore

Skiers on Thursday (10/10) morning reported, "touring up to Blackmore’s east face we found a shallow snowpack that is already showing a few widespread layers. The bottom 5-10cm was weak faceted snow overlaid by 5cm of a sun crust/Ice layer. On top was a few inches of new storm snow. We found the snowpack to be about 30cm’s deep in Blackmore’s east basin at around 9,000ft and above." Photo: C. Kussmaul
