The morning's precipitation has come in warm, as expected, perhaps underwritten by the knee-surgeons of Western Washington -- skiing is very heavy at pass-level.
At pass level, precipitation was slush. By the top of the Summit, simply warm/heavy snow. Tree bombs are unconsolidated, but heavy, loud, and active.
On the bright side, the new snow overnight added substantially to the base. Pole-basket penetration, with a firm shove, reached ~70cm. Ski penetration was far less than we saw yesterday, averaging boot-top-ish, with the occasional drop to deeper in variable terrain.
We sure can celebrate the arrival of an increasingly-robust snowpack, even if the material presently falling from Snoqualmie roofs is more-liquid than solid.
