More detailed information about the snowpack: 

From Aspendell up past North Lake to top of Piute Crags

Firm snow conditions, melt-freeze regime below 9400', above recent snow from 4/18 accumulation totals ranged from 0-25cm. 

Cool North winds slowed surface warming a bit, but still heated up quickly and natural and skier triggered rollerballs and small loose wet slides were occuring by 1300.
