More detailed information about the snowpack: 


Just doing hand/ pole test pits didn't show any immediate red flags. There are some sections of the SE slope that had the top couple CM's slightly more consolidated then underneath. 

Kicking the cornice in the photo took a considerable effort and didn't pop anything else off.

Snowing at the trail head but not sticking to cars or already bare surfaces
