On 2/28 we stayed overnight in the Redmont area at 7200' and observed moderate to strong S/SW winds (estimated 20-30mph,) constant and sustained from pre-dawn through evening of 3/1. There was significant visible snow transport happening throughout the area and especially up high near ridgelines. Everything above treeline was wind effected with substantial scouring and loading. 3/2 was sunny and calm with light wind out of the south. We dug a pit at about 7600' on a NE facing slope of approx. 24 degrees. We found a very stout raincrust 30cm down, and at 110cm down we found about 10cm of faceted sugary snow. In our shovel shear the top 30cm block fractured and slid imperfectly along that rain crust. In our compression test we saw a break (non planar, irregular) at about 15cm down on the 15th loading step; perhaps at the transition between Friday's snowfall and Saturday's snowfall. On the 23rd loading step we saw a break at the 30cm raincrust. In our extended column test we saw a break at about 15cm down on the 23rd loading step, and a break along the 30cm rain crust on the 25th loading step. We saw no propagation.
