More detailed information about the snowpack: 

The buried surface hoar was already collapsed in the locations we checked today. We could find evidence that it is at least 2cm tall in some locations.  Too cold to spend much time looking.  

Skiing on low angle was great. Soft wind slabs forming on the S aspects from the new snow yesterday.
