Schweitzer ski patrol is encouraging and offering weekly free "Transceiver Sundays" (clock tower at 10:00 a.m.) to all interested public with two permanent practice areas and one more difficult challenge that is on a less regular basis. All they ask is that the public covers up their tracks and if practicing digging techniques, please replace your divot. This is a great way to keep on your A game for those venturing out of bounds.
Date and time of observation:

New snow above 11/29 rain crust is fairly unconsolidated and beginning to show signs of faceting due to large temperature gradient in top 40cm of pack. As we receive new snow, this will be a layer of concern for me- weak layer on good sliding surface.
