Weather: Lots of blue and not much for white skys. Calm winds with a few light gusts where we traveled, blowing or swirling snow at times on Mt Emmons summit.
Snowpack: Didn’t get into much for avalanche terrain. 1/29th interface was down about 40cm and HS was in the 100-130 on most slopes traveled. A few hand pits couldn’t get any snow to move on the 29th interface. Snow surface was moist near trees and where it was protected from any air movement. Ski pen about 20cm and boot pen was down to the 29th interface.
