Generally a benign weather day. Cold temperatures, moderate winds at ridgetop, cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. None of these pieces were significantly impacting the snowpack.
Wind-affected snow was the most significant observation. East winds from the weekend sculpted the snow on many E-facing slopes. Large wind-textured features (sastrugi) we evident. However, more recent moderate West winds were reloading the E-faces with new shallow and reactive wind pockets. Fortunately, there wasn't much snow to transport. This kept these new wind slabs very small and confined to features adjacent to the ridgelines.
Southerly slopes hold a much shallower snowpack: HS: 75-100cm, but the general structure looked the same as more shaded slopes (11/4, 11/22, 11/27 all present).
Northerly slopes contain a deeper snowpack with average HS 120-160cm. We conducted several tests on the potential weak snow under the 11/22 crust, but did not find any significant results.
The recent storm snow from 11/29 onward is settling nicely, and seems to be gaining strength. While inter-storm layers are evident, they did not show signs of failing nor continuing to produce avalanches.
Comments: Very small and newly forming wind slabs were located close to ridgelines.
