<5% cloud cover during the morning hours, the occasional breath of light wind but mostly calm. Clouds aloft were trending NE.
10cm thick, well-supportable melt-freeze crust had formed overnight on solars. Underneath, snow was moist to the ground, with a few crusts. A 20cm interval in the middle of the pack was noticeably wetter than the snow above and below. HS=60-80cm at 8,000' on SE. On SE, surfaces had softened for a short window of excellent corn by 1030, but crust was becoming unsupportable by 1130.
Didn't directly encounter avalanche problems, but would have been concerned about gouging wet loose in steeper terrain. Not sure there was enough water production for wet slabs today, but wouldn't have wanted to go looking for them.
