Associated trip report: Matt and I skied generally SW slopes from about 3500 to 5500 near the Snoqualmie Pass Cascade Crest. There was mostly 2-6" of large granular corn snow over a firm base, with a trace of new snow at 3500', up to about 1" new at 5500'. Nothing was solidly frozen, although above 5000' it was firm under the new snow. Weather alternated between warm sunshine and fog/snow showers, although the latter dominated. Most of the turning was very good, firm carvable base up high, the 2-6" of corned snow lower (no breakable crust transition). No avalanche activity on slopes ~35 degrees, but tons of infinitely splitting little snowballs and a few large pin wheels. There was also one section in the middle on the second run where the snow was very grabby. A very nice day of spring skiing!
