Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

I toured the Virginia Lakes area today to get a baseline for snow conditions near tree line. Strong wind actively loaded unconsolidated snow at the lake's basin and surrounding ridgelines . Snow surfaces were variable on NE facing slopes. Wind effect had made some exposed slopes textured and firm, while sheltered terrain collected wind transported snow. I investigated multiple convex features, which revealed wind slab below soft surface snow in some locations.Multiple ECT tests near tree line did not propagate.
