More detailed information about the snowpack: 

By the time we were done for the day around 15:00, there was around 6 inches of new snow on top of the crust at the higher elevations. Low density, light blower powder.  Winds were moderate at the ridgetops out of the Southwest and creating soft windslabs.  The main avalanche problem was loose, dry management on the crust underneath.
