Snow Age Hardening

Ready
Another consequence of Temperature Instability of snow is its change in structure with time. An undisturbed snow mass will densify (decrease in volume) and increase in hardness and compressive strength. The snow crystals will then grow, causing the bond strength between crystals to drop rapidly, leading to the formation of snow with a rough granular surface. This snow has very low cohesion and is easily penetrated.
