Route & General Observations

Four Glide Avalanches have come down today at low to mid elevations from the Sterling Y North to Manitoba. See pictures below. These are all from today! Warm up with the sun seemed to make a difference however the other glide cracks on Fresno and Roaring Ridge have not released.
Be on the look out for Glide Cracks. An additional Glide Avalanche released on Wrong Mountain just to the west of Carter Lake but this one is at least a few days old.
