December 19th 2014 Paradise
« on: 12/19/14, 11:03 PM »

Skied Mazama ridge back bowl for several laps.   Boot top soft snow, somewhat wind effected, but skiied OK.  Dug an pit to the ground.   84cm snow depth,  50cm pencil hard from ground.  34cm fist hard (or softer) above.  Extended column test no results.  Shovel shear failure was irregular.    Wind was moving the snow around -- partiall filling in the ski track between laps.   No movement or sluffing from skiers.   Saw one sluff of steep SE aspect slope where wind loaded rocks had dropped some snow.
