Expecting dust on crust, 20,000 verts and done, the snow gods gave us waist deep and 39k. The waist deep was in the slough-alicious sloughage in Christmas Chute and the Knuckles. Elsewhere it was 3-inch deep dust on crust, and very enjoyable.
The base at the base was boiler plate. Above the frozen snow zone, there was a sweet, soft base. Even the frozen base had enough fresh on top for carve-ability, though it was a bit scritchy.
