Two Top Mtn.

We rode into Two Top Mtn. on the two top Loop Road from the Island Park side. Dug a pit on a road cut on a west aspect and there was 4 feet of snow, 3/4 of it from the recent storm. New snow was right side up and there was minimal old snow to create instability below the new snow at this elevation. Our second pit was at 7,800’, NE aspect, heavily wind loaded. Snow depth was 6 feet and the lower snowpack was very hard and stable. We dug a third pit on a SE aspect at 8,100’. Depth here was 4.5 feet. There was a crust above facets about 1.5 feet above the ground. This layer could be capable of producing avalanches. There was one natural avalanche that occurred during the storm on Lionhead Ridge. We did not see other signs of instability today. Remain cautious of the possibility of avalanches breaking 3 feet deep below the recent large storm.
