New Snow and Test Scores

We toured up the Ramp near Bridger Bowl Ski Area today. On our tour up we saw a few small cracks in front of our skis in the new snow. Also, there were a few crowns and sluffs on higher peaks in the range. The wind blew from the W/SW throughout the day, and it was transporting the new storm snow into harder snow drifts. We dug a pit at 8,300' on a NE facing slope. The snow was 5 feet deep (HS = 150). The weak, sugary snow below the 8-10" of new snow were not reactive in our tests (ECTX 2x). The storm snow is becoming more stable as we move further from this storm. Now, the main concern is terrain with wind-drifted snow.
