Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Snowpack becoming more stable. Test are indicating more stability amidst the persistent weak layers we have been worrying about this season. PST shows that propagation along the rounding facet weak layer (77cm deep) initiated through the interface, but a false stable result can also be within reason. I conducted these tests on a 24 degrees slope angle. No propagation with my ECT. A hard failure with CT @ 24cm deep on a melt-freeze crust.
