Took a lap on FAA while heading over the pass this morning.  Was done skiing by 7am.  Snow had started coming down heavy at 6:45a.  Picked up 6" + in about 5 hours up Randolph creek at 4000'.

Dug a quick pit at FAA.  6000' on a 30 degree North facing slope.  

CT9 down 18cm, CT14 down 33cm.  No propogation on these in the extended column.  CT18 and ECTP28 down 80cm.  Full propogation and clean failure occurred 5cm above crust.
