Re: Santa Fe Region

55cm of settled snow in the trees at 3610m below Deception Ridge. 6+ inches of new snow. Some surface hoar development. Layer of concern is a crust (likely melt freeze) buried between 8cm to 15cm (measured from ground). Stability tests show the layer to be moderately reactive with Q3 shears.
