Today I went up to Virgina Lakes for an afternoon tour.  I started around 2:30 pm and found wet snow from the start unsurprisingly, but supportable with boot penetrations being shallow.  Overall, I found good corn skiing on East aspects above 10,000 ft and some preserved dry snow in sheltered, shaded areas.   This dry snow skied well, but you could still feel the crust under ski with every turn.
