Lulu pass snowpit - 20 Dec

We found weak facets that formed in early December are buried 10" deep outside Cooke City. This layer produced unstable results in stability tests (ECTP 20) on a lightly wind loaded slope near Lulu Pass (12/20). This layer will be the likely place to see avalanches break in the snowpack on wind loaded slopes and when we get more snow. Photo: GNFAC
