We tried to find buried and preserved surface hoar but could only find it in the canyon bottom. I was able to find it at 7900 feet in Silver Fork but had to work really hard and could only find a few flakes. It was easy to see in the canyon bottom. No layers deeper in the snowpack concerned me. There are obvious stripes of graupel from previous storms but they do not seem to be a problem.
The weakest snow for the next 24 hours is the new snow. Near surface facets underneath is the second weakest layer that will need more of a load to become active.
