I spotted a small fresh crown of around 1-1.5’ and around 10’ wide on a convexity in the trees. I decided to test a similar convex rollover that was around 40 degrees at the same location. I was able to trigger a small slab with a crown of about a foot and the length of my ski with a couple of small hops.
Did you observe any avalanches?
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
Signs of Unstable Snow
The snow conditions were extremely variable with lighter snow at the bottom of the valley, then wetter, heavier snow mid-mountain, and dryer again towards the top. I stayed away from larger open slopes. Test slopes skied higher up did not yield any wet slab results like I saw lower down on the mountain.
