No red flags on the tour today. No avalanche activity noted or spotted. Dug pits on N and S aspects at roughly 6600. Non-propagting results in all tests. Surface hoar was noticable on N and S aspects from TH to terminus at 7k, though growth doesn't look near as developed as other obs. Sun crust had developed by late afternoon below 6000 ft. Upper elevation solar snow was still soft probably thanks to gusty afternoon winds.
