Hunting for weak layers
We rode to Arange Peak and dug a pit (HS 210 cm, S facing, 8800'). We found the SH/nsf layer, but it did not propagate, It was a good 2 feet under the surface. We then rode and dug 3 more quick pits and either didn’t find the SH or had ECTN or CTN. We saw no avalanches and a rider who was near Mt. Jefferson 2 days ago also saw no activity. I am still very leery of the SH and believe it survived on a few slopes and acted accordingly, i.e. no riding steep slopes.
