I didn't dig in the snow today, but experienced high winds with lots of moving snow. Many drifts in uncommon areas and huge drifts in common areas. Generally mid elevation travel and experienced some shallow cracking of wind loaded pillows areas that we don't often see drifts of any size.
Confidence in Rating:
Considerable hazard rating in wind loaded areas. There is a lot of low angle terrain available with a ton of snow that has sifted through the trees and landed in isolated pockets, have some fun here without concern of avalanches. DO stay out from under big slopes that will fail from the added weight and stress of the wind deposited snow.
Strong , SW
Blowing and drifting, ridge tops and exposed flat areas have been scoured of all available snow and deposited in many usual and unusual areas.
