Snow Characteristics

Snow surface

About a 4" topper of light snow on top of the storm snow. The surface was highly wind effected on alpine ridges and exposed areas such as common bowl. The fresh surface snow was notably more moist as the day went on. South aspects in the alpine became sun baked. North aspect held dry snow. Slough was sloughing.
