Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Strong winds over the last couple days casued some intresting wind drifts in the road up to leavitt. SW-S-SE Slopes were battered by the winds stripping snow  from there faces. As expected this caused windward slopes N-NE  to collect lage drifts of snow and build cornices. While digging my pit I found a softer layer (4F) 40 cm deep.
