3 very noticeable freeze layers in the 1.5m snow pack. layers exist at 30, 80 and 110 cm. would class as 4 finger resistance.
The snow down low in the trees has not consolidated and we were breaking through to the ground cover , sometimes chest deep. Be careful around trees as the tree wells are very deep in the windblown sections of the mountains.
Enjoy the pics and the small video of the tour
