I went out today to scout conditions for the 10th grade Winter Trip and found some really interesting snow. There is about 10-12 new inches of snow in the Galena Summit area in the last two days, seasoned with some pretty strong winds. The hazard rating was considerable. I was solo so I stayed in green light terrain--but most likely would have done so with a larger group--given the results I got.
Extended Column Test: Went on 9 with a Q-2
