Wind direction in degrees
Aspect in degrees
Up to 30-50cm; thin to melted out on non-N facing aspects
Boot/ Ski penetration
Activity, recent avalanches
Whumphing noises, shooting cracks. collapsing
Obvious avalanche path
Some rockfall on the drive in, including coming off NW-N aspects. Limited to no snow remaining below 7000 feet on drive in from La Canada. Good coverage on N facing slopes in Waterman area. Deeper at some ridge tops that look to have had wind loading in previous storm. No freeze overnight. Aspects outside of N were soft early and showing signs of significant melt by 9am in sunny areas. Sheltered N aspects had decent corn conditions with soft melt freeze going down a few cm. Boot and ski packed areas in more exposed terrain remained firm and fast.
Overall surprisingly good skiing in sheltered N facing areas with coverage.
