Today at Tam Rim we had good visability, light to moderate west winds, and intermittent light snow throughout the day. The air temperature stayed around 21 F and the sky condition was scattered.
We skied North-Northeast aspects near and above tree line.
We found 1-5" of unconsolidated powder on the old snow surface (crust).
While ski cutting we triggered a wind slab avalanche on a north facing slope above tree line. This was very small and isolated.
We had no results on our compression and extended column test, and we did not experience any cracking or whumpfing.
