Snowpit photo below. Of note are the crusts. Basal facets are at base of ski pole. 2nd photo is of the crusts,
ECTPV at base if 1st crust on ppt particles. ECTN for remainder of pit. Solid mid pack and basal facets do not look very alarming but worth noting since they feel hollow when pole is pushed to ground.
HS - 50'
1. basal facets
2. Grains below lower crust, these are only very slightly damp, my guess is rain fell as freezing rain.
3. Grains in between crusts, these may concern me in the future.
Photo below: Iced rime.
Hard call on the danger. Above 9500' I would say moderate. Below 9500' Considerable. This could vary significantly with a change in the rain/snow/ice line.
Skiing was so good today I decided to take the time for a detailed snow pit!
