Snowpack tests in the North Lake Tahoe backcountry

Tracking PWLs: Tahoe Snowpack Tests 2023-12-24


Guides Day off: Toured up to Twin Peaks today with Jan C, John L and Andy Paul.  Fun day out, but a lot of the snow surface had been damaged by tree bombs and roller balls.  We took the opportunity to dig and investigate the Persistent Weak Layer and see if the layer has gained some strength after the intense rain/snow storm we received last week.
