TREND: IMPROVING / ONGOING / DETERIORATING
Observations currently indicate that the windward aspects are very hard and wind scoured to the extent that it would seem everything has been blown onto the leeward aspects. As made obvious by the uncharacteristic appearance of those aspects now showing huge wind loading, in places as much as 4m deep. This hard pack, rime and ice is heightened by a cycle of freeze / thaw had started prior to this next deposition (Thursday).
Snow expect to hit the Main Range on Thursday and then back to spring conditions.
The new precip from last week is unlikely to be bonding well to the existing bed surface particularly up high. Steep Wind loaded aspects lee to the West should be avoided.
