Went to the Flathead Range today to monitor the start of the storm and look at the layers of facets buried where the snowpack is shallowest.
So, our takeaways: We have stiffer snow buried with a weak layer on top (either the low density recent snow, or the buried facets depending on location). The slab looks like it's coming tonight.
