Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Some minor amounts of blowing snow were observed above treeline with tiny, inconsequential wind slab of 2 inches deep or less noted on NE and some NW aspect above treeline terrain. No signs of problematic instability or wind slabs sufficiently large to allow for any avalanche activity.

Snow surface conditions were a mix of frozen surfaces and bare ground above treeline. At and below treeline a mix of lingering pockets of unconsolidated recent storm snow up to 4 inches deep was interspersed with areas of crust and frozen snow surfaces.
