30cm HS over 2cm MFCr at 1900m W aspect, which carried very well up/down to make for excellent travel and skiing. By 2050m MFCr was no longer present. Storm must have finished without a ton of wind as there is 20-30cms available for transport near ridgetop. Convective cells rolled in by 11am which may have saved some snow on west aspects?
