More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Skied the East ridge above Crater Lake near Profile Summit (SE@8000')

No natural activity observed, tried to trigger multiple test slopes on the way up with sleds and skis with no signs of instability.

HS 160 cm

Multiple sun crusts buried; 20 cm from surface,  50 cm from surface and another down about 30 cm from the ground.

Skiing was great,  in order to stay out of the crusts we moved slightly and found plenty of protected snow.
