On any turn on a slope above 25 degrees, cracks developed outside of each turn, collapsing the newer snow above the buried crust. The bottom half of the average 65cm total snowpack featured weak facets to the ground. Then a 6cm layer of crust supportive of skis but not boots, then the 25cm of snow from the past week. I found very similar conditions at Sargent's two days earlier. We didn't bother with a pit when a ski pole could be punched to the ground. Still way too brushy to enjoy any turns beyond the logging roads.
