Recent snowfall (wetter/heavy flakes, 31F) on top of blower from late in the previous week. Recent warming of 20 °F at Powder Patch.
Wet snow beginning to form rain crust at higher elevations, lower elevations below saddle were soft throughout. Pole assessment on tour up: relatively isothermal-feeling fresh snow below the rain crust; everything seemed homogenous within the new snow with a bit of hollow facets at the first rain layer from The Great Meltdown the week prior.
Compression Test results: CT 26 at the 50 cm Meltdown crust, CT 33 at the 100 cm crust
