More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Yesterday near Fisher Creek saddle, North of McCall, under warmer temperatures, we observed a stronger snow pack that lacked results from earlier in the week. The poor structure is still present, and the persistent weak layers are still giving planar surfaces when they break. Check out this propagation saw test video. It collapsed suddenly on facets above a stout crust. This layer is deep here, but where the snow pack is shallower we believe a person could still effect it. The variable depth of the snow pack from a given place in the mountains will keep this on our radar for a while as it holds a lot of snow above poor structure.
