I skied SE facing lines N of Alturas lake running from about 8500 to 7200.
Despite the cloudy start to the say, eventually the sun came out full force and there was decent corn skiing to be had on solars surprisingly late into the day (2pm or so). However, shady slopes had variable dust on crust and breakable crust, and sheltered areas had up to 4" of dry snow even by mid-afternoon.
Some S facing lines that had avalanches gouge particularly deep into the snowpack this season, or are narrow, wont go for much longer (without stepping around rocks by 7500ft or so).
While travel nearby at higher elevations (around 10,000) on S through E facing slopes I found a pack that is far from consolidated. While skinning I sunk to mid-boot in dry(ish) snow, layered with multiple crusts in the upper 10". High elevations seem like they need a bit longer to fully corn up.
