We found few examples of recent avalanche activity in good visibility across
Mostly sunny with high cirrus. Pleasant temperatures, 23-29 degrees. Light wind
at 3800 feet, 3-6mph.
Evidence of recent windloading, scoured ridges, large cornices.
Wind slab, natural avalanche in picture below, probably 1-3 days old.
We skied south aspect from 3700 feet. The snow carved well with occasionally
stiffer pockets. Steeper terrain or isolated pockets are likely wind loaded in
ways that could break in a slab from a person’s influence.
Very small surface hoar, less than .5mm, was seen at 2500-3000 feet. This would
not have been noticeable except the sunlight was glinting off the square faces.
