From quick handpits we found a thin crust buried about 12" deep up to about 1500'. The new snow did not want to shear cleanly off the old snow interface in hand pits, but we did see plenty of dry loose activity on steep test slopes.
See attached photo and snow profile for more details. Highlights from the snowpit below.
Pit info (N. aspect, 2200' el., total depth 69"):
- Crust from 1/24 buried 8" deep
- ECTN24 below the 1/24 crust
- NY crust buried 30" deep
- Facets above NY crust are rounding and did not show any signs of instability in pit.
- Facets below NY crust are large (2-3 mm), striated (this means they are advanced), and had a hand hardness of 4F-. No result in ECT even with a few 'bonus taps', but when I pried on the column it popped right off on these facets.
