Forecaster Comments

John mentioned via email that his group was sticking to low slope angles, with new snow depths varying from 4-40 inches. Given all of the new snow and loading, it is likely that stability would not feel as good on steeper slopes. Thanks for the follow up John.

Avalanche Details

Medium size soft snow sluff-alanches across the way. Heavy loading and slope angle. Not any noticable slab.

Not much slab to speak of on north face except just along ridge. Plenty of transport but not becoming all that cohesive.
