There is plenty of buried surface hoar on north facing terrain as soon as the snow is not protected by a dense forest canopy. Meadow skipping can lead to very nasty surprises right now.
Very light wind transport observed, snow along ridge lines is starting to be wind hammered.

I traveled mostly under a dense canopy, and as soon as I had a clear view of the sky there was buried SH, and at higher elevations also an FC-MFcr-DH sandwich at the bottom of the snowpack, both of these were reactive to ect and pst.
