Zone or Region:
Mazama Ridge and Golden Gate
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
Spotted a smallish loose wet slide on the east side of Panorama Point that appeared to be the result of a cornice failure a day or two prior. Likely the same one noted in other recent observations.
Snow on solar aspects was getting pretty soggy by 1300, some chalky powder holding in north aspects in the shade. Crust formed on solar aspects pretty quickly once they lost the sun later in the afternoon.
Was surprised there were not more loose wet slides based on how strong the sun felt.
