Toured around big creek today. Isolated wind slabs near ridge from the north winds, but weren't sensitive to skier cuts and stayed put.
some minor new snow sloughing, but no signs of instability. Solar aspects seemed to have survived the day with a crust developing.
good skiing on north aspects with deeper snowpack. South aspects still thin and shallow. Wind affected snow confined to ridges.
