Quite an interesting snowpit in the Belledonne range, France. There is 140cm of snow depth on this NW facing slope with two crusts in the snowpack. Not too much of a temperature gradient but some surface hoar crystals have formed in the anticyclonic conditions. The top 5cm of snow is not well bonded, neither is the snow above the first crust - about 50cm depth. The avalanche bulletin has spoken of the possibility of slabs of this depth, it seems there is a layer of less cohesive snow above the crust.
