Written Report:
Calm winds, intermittent clouds and sun. Warming surface temperature created damp snow by afternoon. West facing aspects in crater were wind scoured and rimed. East facing aspects outside of crater held more new snow (8-10cm). Widespread roller balls and falling ice on east aspects. Skiing on shaded upper NE slopes outside crater (the “east ramp”) was excellent.
