Skiing in area (closed) today. Observed 40cm of new snow since yesterday afternoon. Ski pen is 15cm and boot pen is 35cm. Noticeable change in hardness for the lower 30cm (4F-) to the upper 10cm (F). Received about 1-2 cm of graupel during skin up after the measurements were taken. The storm also started with some wind and graupel on 01/02/22 - need to poke around that some more.
Observed some separation between storm layers on steep pitches - see picture
Very enjoyable skiing in gentle terrain, but certainly not the day for big/medium objectives.
