Did a quick pit on a low angle NE facing slope to see what things were looking like at the top of hyak at approx noon. About 10 to 15 cm of wet snow above another 30 to 45 cm of light stuff. Below that was a stiffer section of another 10 to 15 cm above a hard crust, assuming the solstice. In doing a compression test, the top saturated layer came off just when isolating the sides and didn't even need a tap. Tapping from the wrist on the remaining portion of the column had the light powder crumble down to the stiffer layer below . Didn't seem cohesive yet.
