Recent snowfall of 12/23-12/25 with cold temps deposited very fine powder, about 4-6” down in the 8000-8500’ meadows and a bit more higher up.
Wind loading on northerly aspects at high elevations is considerable, wallowing up to armpit depth occassionally, frequently thigh deep. This new snow sits atop the consolidated remains of the early season storm pack of several inches.
