Location: Huntington Ravine

Skiers who braved the rain at lower elevations were rewarded with moderate to heavy snowfall at middle and upper elevations. Our avalanche course had snow pits as a learning objective today. Digging just above the floor of Huntington Ravine required woodpecker-like tenacity. We practiced several column test, which resulted in CTNs and an ECTX.

Yesterday’s sun crust was supportive yet edgeable. By 1PM, there was 2 – 3″ of new snow. The fresh snow made skiing the lookers’ left side of the Fan really enjoyable.
