None reported
6700 ft elevation, south aspect. Total depth of snowpack was 280 cm.

CT4, 27cm down.
ECT5, 27cm down, full propagation.
Both failed on a 1/2-inch crust. Not sure if it's from rain or sun.

Decent snow quality above 6400ft. Fun and surfy Oregon pow. Kind of manky at lower elevations. I kept the skiing under 30 degrees due to pit results.
