Damp and thick on sun exposed slope that didn't get much wind. North facing trees have good dense loose powder. 

Comments: 

The strong winds from yesterday did some serious damage on exposed slopes. Some even look worse than they did before all the snow we got in the last week. Other favored areas are hard to even recognize with how much more snow they have on them now.
