Mostly clear, with some scattered thin, light clouds


Observed from the Sunburst ridge, what appeared to be a large D4; R4, probably cornice trigged slide near the end of the storm cycle on the north face if what I think is called 3 ring circus. Visible from our vantage point approximately 6-7 miles away. I didn't have a camera or binoculars to confirm more details.
