A lot of the snowpack had either consolidated down low thanks to tree bombs, melt from the trees, etc; much of the rain shadows around trees well below treeline, e.g. 3.5k' were nice and consolidated.
Above 4k' though, it was a mix of conditions. There was a fair amount of consolidated wet loose snow, but it wanted to slide whenever force was applied on it with our snowshoes. Furthermore, in the shaded sections we ran into dry sluff over rain crust, which made for a wonderful medium to descend over 35°+ slopes without crampons.
A lot of snow was balling up under our microspikes throughout the day when out in the sun. The snow was very wet and heavy.
Down low in the morning, though, I noticed that the humidity had been sucked out of the top layers by the cold cloudless nights, so it will be interesting to see whether or not this instability gets buried over time.
