wind slab near Fairy Lake

From obs 11/11/21: "Dug a snow pit at 8,280ft adjacent to a chute. It was NW aspect. We found a ~35cm 1 finger windslab sitting on top of a ~25cm knife hard slab. We got CT 12 on the first slab and CT 15 on the deeper slab. On the ECT, we got a slight fracture at 15 taps and a full fracture at 17 (ECTP+2). This layer seemed to be on all aspects we looked at above tree line on NW faces. Bellow treeline, the snowpack was shallower and seem to lack these slabs." Photo: J. Krause
