Toured up toward Mt. Blackmore today with the goal of skiing the mellow SE facing meadow and familiarizing myself with the current unstable snowpack. While stopping for lunch I dug a quick pit out of curiosity and performed a CT at 8757’ on a NW aspect with HS 85cm. Results were CT11 down 17 cm within the new snow on a hardness change and a CT13 down 35 cm on old facets. Moving farther up in the basin we noticed the pictured recent D2 avalanche on the E aspect of Blackmore. As we skinned up the SE meadow, we experienced three audible whumpfs. Otherwise great skiing was found today albeit a bit thin!
