Snowpack at Mt. Blackmore, 25 Oct

From obs.: "Dug a few hasty pits and found the snowpack to be pretty saturated all the way to the ground until around 9,500ft. The upper parts of the Blackmore east face had well over 3ft of snow, and was still dry and faceted at the base. Picture is a pit from around 9,700ft on Blackmore... 115cm deep. Wet snow made up about 2/3rds of the snowpack, on top of a sun crust with dry basal facets below." Photo: C. Kussmaul
