More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Substantial surface hoar observed on all aspects at mid-upper elevations. Snowpack seemed stable, but concerned about new forecasted snow bonding poorly as it falls on this surface hoar, and also the heavy new loading waking up some older weak persistant layers.
