Riming and Inverted Snow

Here's a snow crystal image during the period of higher density snow at Alta on Friday night.  Note the crystal on the left is quite rimed, as is the right hand portion of the crystal on the right.

Thus, it does appear there was increased riming that led to the higher density snow, as proposed by David in his comment to my post below.
