Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Parked at the Deadman Summit parking area, toured up the road to Glass Creek Trailhead. Crossed the creek and traveled up to about 9,500 ft. on a should on the east side of White Wing. In the lower shaded north-facing forst there was about 30 cm of nsow with light sun crusts, otherwise the snow wa recrystallized. There was a bit of localized collapsing on the flats at 9,000 ft. There were a few spots where the wind drifts were greater than 60 cm but the higher slopes had much less snow. The snow surface was soft wind affected snow with about 2 inches of ski penetration.
