Strong S winds moving snow on to lee slopes. High elevation areas are becoming stripped and some ridgelines are forming hard slabs. Obvious signs of cross loading in photos below. 
Comments
We found an unusually deep snow pack in Scotties bowl, HS 225cm. An STH at both 90 cm down and 125cm down. A Ct24 Q2 on a layer 90cm down was the only result that was noteworthy. We didn't get any results with the Ect.
