Snowpit Observations
More detailed information about the snowpack: 

A large layer of facets exist on base of the snowpack, from the ground up 33cm in my pit location. This is the persistent layer we have in the local snowpack that could cause avalanches on steep slopes in isolated places. Although a dense layer of windpack is bridging the persistent layer, making it more difficult to trigger. Today I splitboarded in the same area & 8cm of new snow had fallen. No signs of new avalanche activity, but visibility was limited.
