Snowpack Summary

Recent snow continues to settle and bond. This new snow is sitting atop old wind-affected snow and weak, sugary facets.

The mid-snowpack is generally made up of faceted snow and various old crusts.

At the base of the snowpack, weak faceted grains and depth hoar are present, particularly in alpine terrain.
