Winds picked up this morning and were in the 10 - 15 mph range on ridgetops but just light W winds below ridgelines. Didn't notice any snow transporting.
Went out today to work on a research project. We did get a slope to collapse and were finding weak faceted snow beneath a hard slab. Not much is changing with the snowpack structure. The most reactive layer right now seems to be the buried near-surface facets beneath the hard wind slab that formed on 12/23. This layer also seems to be to the culprit for many avalanches that ran naturally on Tuesday.
The snowpack has many faceted weak layers in it with the key communicating slab being the hard slab that formed prior to this last storm.
