It's truly gonna be sketch here pretty soon,allsorts of sun crust/facet surfaces and all it needs now is a slab ontop of a weak layer and a sliding surface,had 10cm last night and already can see stuff starting to slide on convexities,might be time to bail outta here!!

For anyone heading out in the pass in the next week or so, make sure you read this recent MCR report:

http://informalex.org/mharc/html/MCR/20 ... 00030.html

stuff is setting itself up to be pretty sketchy in the near future

Was there April 13 to 15. Warm weather and rain up 1700 m first day and previous day was warmer. So mostly all avalanche path below treeline had slid from size 2 to 3.5 (Frequent flyer). A lot of glide cracks on the way up too
Next days, freezing line lowered and got up to 45 cm new snow in alpine. Best aspects were north facing with dry powder (Bruins Pass, Youngs Peak) over 2000 m. Not so bad at all in the alpine. Worst compression test results were hard with planar results. Still plenty of snow in valley bottoms just need to manage your travel to the alpine safely.

decent early season conditions up Connaught yesterday...
above treeline theres *generally* a base of 100 - 140 cms under a solid rain crust, and 20 - 40 fresh on top of that, mostly blower with some wind affected
the pow seems to be sticking to the crust *reasonably well* for the most part with some localised cracking / shearing
good shreddin down to about 2000m
reasonable down to about 1800m, some open water in creek beds
kind of desperate below that, the alder still owns the slide paths, an important factor for route selection
the rain crust is good for keeping the ptex off the rocks but its definitely a layer to keep in mind until things bridge it well
