Whitefish Range/Flathead Range 13,14 April 2013

From: Joe Grabowski
Date: April 13 & 14, 2013
Time: Middle of the day
Location: Whitefish Range & Flathead Range
Activity: Skiing

Snowpack Observations:
Ir is worthwhile to note that although the skiing is good the stability is not good. I toured the southern Whitefish Range on Saturday and the Flathead Range on Sunday. I am finding poor bonding between the storm snow (8″) and the sliding surface. Easy but resistant shears. On Sunday the top layer of the storm snow was becoming heavy and therefore inverted.
