Elevation: Near treeline

Aspect: S

Did you see any avalanches? No

Did you trigger any avalanches? No

Was anyone caught in an Avalanche? No

Comments: Dug a pit at artist point. 30 cm new on top of a rain sun crust. Facets were noted between the crust and the new snow. Below crust was preserved loose snow particles. I was very surprised to see these layers and thought they would have been destroyed by recent rain.
