Had a good reminder that it’s spring and warm enough in the shade to produce wet slides in north facing terrain below 7000’. Found surface hoar above 7000’ in shady aspects and widespread solar crusts.
Beautiful sunny day with afternoon clouds.

Went exploring today. Found great snow in north aspects above 7000’. Once below we found frozen coral reef wet slide debris or surface crust. We avoided solar aspects due to crust and/or wet snow. Dry loose was a concern in steep terrain above 7500’. Wind affect up high in alpine terrain.Close
