Group went to investigate snowpack on the widest of the angel slides. A pit was dug and 50cm of total snow was observed (in this specific location). CT 15@20cm from the surface, which was the crust layer from last storm cycle, and CT21 at the ground level (Dec rain event) which was a highly faceted, rotten layer. ECT was done, ECT22N @20cm. The block sheared at the base, but showed high resistance to being moved. Higher up on the slide, a total snow depth of as little as 5cm was observed, which was merely recent snow and the December rain facets. A very loud whumpf was heard propagating uphill, which we believed to be the December rain facets collapsing. The group descended through the trees. Rocks were hit. Spatial variability was extreme going both up and across the slide, with vastly different snowpack observed as the group ascended.
