Yeah..  Those conditions look terrible...  From the looks of it, the first part of the video only has 8-12" rideable pow. 

Did it turn to muck after that or did it maintain?

whoops -= higher FLs only to the end of the trip

Day 1 - was 5% water content snow (moderate density for the Pass) and yeah - I'd say about 30 - 40cms ski pen so your guess is about right.   Ie knee to hip-deep powder

Day 2 - was actually deeper due to aspect and windloading but substantially less stable.  Scary actually with slides starting on 20 - 25 deg slopes

Day 3 was when FL's went sky high
