More detailed information about the weather: 

    Did not dig a pit, just looked at layers after someone got a good stuck.  New snow slid easily on the recent hoar frost layer.   Fortunately it was just fluff and not slabbed.  The solid layer approximately 1.5-2 feet down is a definite slab,  but appears to be well bonded with the layer below it.   Some wind loading was observed higher up, but at a distance.
