Anything really important to put on your cheat sheet?

Maybe someone could clear this up for me. What's the difference between the equilibrium line, snow line, and firn line? Are they interchangeable or do they have different meanings? Thanks

I thought it was a fairly good test, but I wish there would have been more knowledge-based questions instead of data/map analysis questions. I think a test like the Iolani one, plus a bit of map analysis, would have been ideal.

Is it likely that the rules won't change next year? Same topic.
Do you think that there will be 4 double sided notepages allowed next season? Or do you think that they will change it?

The topic will be the same as they are in two year rotations and most likely we will be allowed to use 4 pages of notes because it has been that way for the past (at least) 3 years.

The nationals test was a bit weird, but I liked it. Road Scholar experience definitely would've helped
