Avalanche Conditions

Hi, Here is a snapshot of what I've seen so far. I hike out to Elfin Lakes yesterday. On ridge top there was an average depth of 40-50cm. Deeper drifts on lee sides. The snowpack was below avalanche threshold then with many ground features visible. Last night it showed 30cm at around -5..
It's now deep enough here for us to consider avalanche hazard from at least our elevation of 1475m and higher.
From my view on the deck it looks pretty skiable!
