More detailed information about the snowpack: 

Took a cruise down Visalia Bowl behind Dave's Run to see how south aspects were softening.  Full sunshine this morning with some scattered thin high clouds devloping in the afternoon.  Air temps in the mid to upper 30s F at 11:30 around 11,000', and a steady moderate SW wind blowing at the ridgeline, and a steady light wind blowing mid-slope.  Upper slopes were being cooled and were slightly moist but still a bit firm, while 150' down from the ridgeline and below slopes were softening a good bit more, but not to concerning levels.  At 9500' boot pen was still only ~10cm on a south aspect.   A swath of particularly sticky snow was found ~9200' +/- 100ft or so.
