This was a typical spring mass balance trip, digging snow-pits and coring to measure the thickness and density of the winter snow-pack, and drilling new stakes to measure ablation this summer. We also used high-frequency radar to quantify snow-depths along a series of profiles as we did last year. We had decent weather and everything went pretty well. It was a fun trip. Thanks to Johnny Sanders, Dan McGrath, and Emily Roland for all of the help.
