North faces are holding up beautifully.  8-10" of consistent, even, "old" powder.  All other aspects suck.  Breakable crust, topped with recent light snow and wind-transported snow.  Good for practicing jump turns and self-inspiring yells, not much else.  The snowfield sounded even worse (report from descending rider: "It's a nightmare of rimed crust over cold snow.").  The sunset lasted for hours.  Turns in red snow are delicious.

Good observations, Woz.
