-5.0 degr C,  Few Clouds, Light East winds.  No new snow.  Snow Depth 225 cm.  

Well developed surface hoar out there treeline and below, new sun crust on steep solar aspects.  25-30 cm settled storm snow overlies a layer of small surface hoar and facets buried Dec 27.  80 - 100 cm of settled storm snow overlies the December 15 layer of surface hoar, facets, and sun crust - bonding well except on lower slope features where surface hoar is more preserved.

Small solar triggered pinwheels and sluffs yesterday.

Self guided guests skiing Crystal Vision, Caribou Pass, and Blind Faith the past few days.
