Not Before we see how deep it REALLY is. I’m thinkin the settling was from the copious amounts of wind blown snow bearing down on the buried weak layers. There was 3-4 times as much snow here on top of the old facets/crusts compared to most other north facing areas so this is a look into the future. You can see the temperature crust right underneath my arm from before this last storm.
