Avalanche Details

Many crowns on basically all the steep gullies, point releases off the rocks, one slide, maybe from yesterday, hit the summer trail. Some of the point releases seemed to have triggered into the persistent weak layer. We even saw a very small crown in the alders just above the summer trail. We also observed a natural run almost to the summer trail at 1pm.
