Route & General Observations

Did a lunch Troy lap. It was snowing from the parking lot. There were ~2 inches of new snow as of noon. The new snow/old snow interface was mostly supportive crust below ~2600′, above which the older snow was softer. I also observed shooting cracks in wind-transported fresh snow as I started skiing off the top.
