Traveled up the west side of the Swan Range and over the crest in search of the surface hoar buried 2/23. No sign if it above 6000 feet east of the crest. What we did find:
With the 2/23 buried Surface hoar not present in pits and no signs of a persistent slab problem, we felt comfortable skiing short pitches up to 40 degrees on north through east slopes at mid elevations. On the west side of the crest, we used all our jedi powers to find dry, uncrusted snow.
To 7050 ft
Widespread rollerballs on sunny slopes, some of which coalesced into actual wet loose slides.
