The snow pack has become very stable. Our small column and extended coulum test produced no results. We observed a facet layer 2.5 feet from the surface that was in later stages of rounding.
Storm front arrived later in the day with increasing snow fall and winds into the evening and night. New snow available for transport

North East aspect upper elevation we conducted a Compression Test results CTN. Extended Column Test results ECTX
The snowpack has become very stable. We observed a faceted layer deeper in the snow pack that was in early stages of rounding. We noted a layer of Surface Hoar buried two inches from the surface. This layer has the potential to develop into a persistent weak layer with new snow coming.
We felt confident in a(stepping out) terrain use, being cautious of complex avalanche terrain
