Variable surface textures, pow/MFcr/soft windslab/hardwind slab on top of a 3-15cm thick MFcr about 50-60cm into snowpack. A few hand shears showed the lower slab was poorly bonded to crust due to a surface hoar/facet combo sitting on top of it in some areas. That seems to be the bed surface the large avalanche in the picture ran on. Bed surface is mostly reloaded in that area. (This is not a recent avalanche, just an observation about the bed surface reloading ? )

Riding quality was ok.
