During our ride/tour today we found surface hoar on all aspects and at all elevations above 6000'. Below this surface hoar we found a layer of small facets on top of the Thanksgiving crust. The Thanksgiving crust that has been supporting us in our travels lately was decomposing and breaking down into larger grained faceted grains. We triggered a small loose dry avalanche on a shaded aspect.
We parked the pickup at the Doris Cr road and rode the snowmobiles from there up Doris Cr. We followed the fireline to the bench between Doris Mtn and Blaine Mtn.
