Written Report:
Skied narrow chute ( 40 plus degree slope) north side of Todd Ridge towards Soda Creek. Experienced small dry releases of 40-50cm storm snow layer above the melt-freeze crust. None carried any distance, though represented concern about steeper slopes holding larger amounts of unconsolidated snow in potential terrain traps.
Dug an observation pit out of harms way at the bottom of the slope to determine weakness in storm snow and at and around 1/13 freeze layer.
