Observation Date/Time:
Wed, Feb 12, 2020 - 10:41 AM
Tam Rim Area
Report Type:
Snow Conditions   No Avalanche Activity  
Travel Mode:
Ski or Snowboard  

Written Report:
Warm temps and sunshine warmed up the surface, but not enough to create loose wet surface slides. Maybe as the weekend heats up on sunny, steeper slopes...

No avalanches, or any other signs of instability were found on other aspects.

Surface conditions are kind of a mixed bag. Ever decreasing North pockets had soft snow through Thurs. Sun exposed slopes are starting to soften up and melt freeze crusts exist everywhere else.

Surface hoar has been widespread in mornings and melting back in the afternoons.
