Broken Top Area
Ski or Snowboard
Just north of the summer Broken Top trailhead, I dug into the snow and checked out the layering in the upper meter of snow (see profile chart below). The most recent snow appears to be bonding well with the topmost crust. Overall, the snowpack structure was looking good.
I toured into the Broken Top bowl, the snow surface was mostly old wind blown snow.
There were small cornices hanging over east facing slopes, but no signs of recent cornice breaks.
I observed blowing snow at ridgetops, the wind was shifting from west, north and SE
I observed no signs of unstable snow and no recent avalanches.
