Any other comments about the observation or links to outside pages that have more info on the 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.
