Small surface hoar was often but not always present on the surface, 2-4mm at the parking lot and slightly smaller on Eddies. Recent outflow winds created a thin wind skin/patches of wind slab up to 1" thick just above the alders on a NW aspect to the base of the trees. Above that, small areas of 1-4" wind slabs could be found on the normal uptrack ridge and Eddie's NW face, with ski penetration of 2-6". Above 2000' along the ridge, a firm snow surface - with patches blown down to a very stout melt freeze crust (mid-mega storm?) - was found in areas that are usually the most wind scoured. More westerly terrain features remained soft! In the trees along the trail up, good coverage... even the alders are starting to lay down!
