Duffey Lake Skiing
We had overcast skies, light W winds and -2 at 2050m on the Duffey today.
Surface snow was moist to 2000m and above, down 5-20cm variably. Semi breakable crust 3cm thick on solar slopes at treeline and mashed potatoes on lower angle terrain. The December 14th interface is down 50-60cm and producing hard resistant planar results. Well settled lower snowpack.
We saw evidence of wet loose to size 2.0 out of steep alpine terrain.
Test pit on a 31 degree NNW aspect at 2030m with a snowpack depth of 175cm, produced a CTE PC down 3cm just below the surface crust, CTH RP down 30cm at a density change, CTH RP down 52cm on the 171214 interface on a mix of rounds and facets 1.5mm.
