Overnight/late Saturday easterly winds gusting moderate/strong, but while we were out wind was mainly calm with occasional light gusts. No snow visibly transporting on any of the nearby peaks. It was cold! The day started off with single digits F and reaching into double digits midday. With the subtle breeze at the ridge, it was remarkably colder.
We traveled up Skyline/Moonlight vicinity. Surface hoar was visible on the surface everywhere we travelled, so we suspect it developed after the wind event.
Recently formed thin hard and soft slabs were present along ridgelines and around features on sparsely treed slopes. Sheltered north-facing slopes still had around a foot of right-side-up snow over the MLK crust, but southerly aspects only had about 2" of low density snow over a crust. The only thing that slightly resembled avalanches was mid-slope ~3 foot wide, 2 inch deep soft slab pockets which likely developed in the recent wind. They were triggered on steep rollovers during our descent in a few spots.
In a NW facing pit just below the ridge we saw rounding 1mm 4F facets above the MLK crust which produced a CT26 SP, but ECT's yielded no results. Near surface faceting was present everywhere we traveled, although it was mainly very subtle, .5-1mm grains mixed in with decomposing forms.
