Used my machine to travel from the Sanpete Valley up to North Tent today.  Visibility was in and out but I did get a glimpse at a number of avalanche paths.  I have yet to see any activity from our big storm.  Currently, the snowpack looks great.  The Thanksgiving storm layer faceted slightly before our big storm.  The grains are very small and not all that loose.  Snowpit tests did not reveal any shears or propagation.
