Clitocybe is ruled out. So we have to stick (no pun intended) to Hygrophoraceae.

The mushroom on the very right even has needles stuck to it. I wish I had notes and more photos, sorry. :)

Are the caps even viscid?

This looks like some aberrant Clitocybe or the like to me. In Europe we have Clitocybe nivea that assumes the gestalt of a Hygrocybe/Camarophyllus.
