Thin and stable conditions

Just wanted to update you on what we found yesterday in the field working on the Frozen Tag.

We rode on the south side of Sawtelle Road below Rae’s Peak and Stamp Meadows Trail and no surprise to anyone we did not find much snow. What snow was there was hero snow with about a foot of loose dry snow on top of a pretty solid base. We did not see or find any signs of instability where we were at. We beat the snow up pretty hard on convex rolls, small wind loads, and short steep slopes with no results.

The biggest concern we found was open streams. A lot of the drainages have few snow bridges in them. But that was really about it.
