Somewhat a moot point giving a conditions report given the big storm that is on the way, but I figured I'd go ahead and put up a quick TR.
CT tests that we dug, we got faint cracks at CT4 about 9" down and a Q2 shear at 24" down on CT16 (though our tap test were on slightly less than prime slope angles). The  interface between the 4-5ft of new and the old crust was better than expected.   We avoided skiing open terrain as much of it was wind affected and had a slab forming on top.  Sluff management, avoiding wind affect, and keeping to mellower slopes was the plan for the day.
Actually had a few sunbreaks earlier in the day and the wind wasn't too bad.   All aspects we skied were fun as long as we were down in the trees.
Should be a whole other ball game given all the new snow in the forecast for overnight.

Thanks for the TR!

Have you seen the NWAC observation page? Observations can be added by anyone on their GIS page. Seems like a pretty cool tool for sharing data easily.
