Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

I climbed the Mendenhall Route on Laurel. Found 4-5cm of moist snow on the surface of all patches on all aspects. Some of those patches, beneath the moistened snow, especially lower down, were firm, supportable mf and wind-pressed rounds. Up higher (above 11500 or so), the moist snow sat over 1-2mm facets. Looking elsewhere, notably, the Red Slate couloir is still entirely bare ice. The attached photo, especially when zoomed in, shows this.
