Avalanche Details

The sluff really ran today and perhaps crossed the line to D2 dry loose avalanche. The top 6-8 inches of fluff is not well bonded to the surface underneath. I didn't spot any crowns from slab avalanches in the Library or on the south side of Eddies. Natural loose snow avalanches were small by Library standards.
