Now here’s a thread with a pleasing mix of photo stoke and nerdy snowpack analysis.

We did get results at 1930m on a NNW aspect in a full pit. CTE (5) down 18 SP; CTM (11) down 62 SP; and CTM 14 down 119!!! SC. On an extended column test at the same pit, we could only get propagation on the layer 18cm down, and even this was RP, though the block was happy to slide off once the propagation was complete.

Surely the recent snowfall events out there hold the promise of more great posts.
