Poor Snowpack Structure

I got out in the morning for some quick turns and headed to some north facing trees.  I found the snow in this particular area to me more sensitive than I've seen in the last two weeks.  Both my tests failed sudden planar and I was sinking down into facets while skinning.  Despite the warm temps, what supportive structure we had is quickly faceting and falling apart.
