Recreational Observation

We worked our way up the XC trails to the NE flanks of Diamond Head before turning around due to reports of windscoured rocky conditions on the north facing slope between DH and Windy Knob

Dec. 13, 2015, 2 p.m. PST

Weather: Broken clouds, light winds, temps slightly below freezing

Snowpack: Ankle to thigh deep variable light powder over near-surface crust. Deeper snow in wind-sheltered north facing gladed slopes, much thinner on NE and E aspects. No slabby tendencies in the storm layer. No wumphing or collapsing observed.

Area Description: Lower N/NE slopes of Diamond Head

Avalanches: No signs of instability observed though we stayed in almost exclusively low angle terrain.
