More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Today we toured up Voodoo Bowl and skied one of the central north facing gullies.  Skies were partly cloudy and there was a light to moderate breeze at ridge top. Temperatures were generally warm in the sun, but surprisingly cool when the wind picked up under cloud cover. There was around 1-3" of settled new snow from the storm on the 14th resting on a stout crust. In most areas the new snow had been through a melt freeze cycle yesterday, and was heating up again today. The wet surface snow only produced very minor rollerballing during our descent today around 2PM. There was not enough of it to create a hazard. We also observed several natural loose wet rollerballs that occured during the day yesterday on northerly aspects. We did find some isolated north facing spots above 10,000 ft that still had dry snow. Some of these were drifted in up to 8" deep, but the drifts were unreactive.
