I would rate the avalanche hazard at moderate on high elevation wind loaded slopes. And low at all other areas. We have about 3 feet of snow at elevation that is forming a great base. with a major winter storm system rolling in that will likely deliver over a foot of powder snow, this will naturally elevate the hazard rating until we get enough time to allow settling and stabilization. The weekend will bring better weather with a deep layer of new snow. Have fun with that and stay off of and out from under slopes that are steeper than 30 degrees.
90cm at elevation with descent cohesion. 10cm of new snow. Compression test resulted in a CTN. Extended column test resulted in ECTX.

There is a 4cm layer of depth hoar next to the ground. I was able to identify the 1122 facet layer that could potentially become a problem with the new storm snow from the current storm cycle.
We watched for wind drifts but did not find anything that would crack or collapse.
