A full snow pit profile takes a good amount of time, and is more geared for painting an overall picture. It is not something I would use for slope analysis. For trends and slopes/aspects you want might want to avoid or pay closer attention to, yes.
The quicker you can do pit work, the more likely you are to do it. To be honest, if I feel that sketched out, that I want to do numerous pits, I'm probably just going to go conservative instead. There will always be another day.
