Mid day full sun wet slides released about the new old snow interface. however there was not a consistent bed surface except on steep concave starting zones. Around the 5k mark slope angle needed to be 40 or higher to build volume and speed. Most starting zones where point releases in the steep rocks and cliff bands. A quick pit to about 1 meter showed good bonding acceoss layers with (mostly healed) facets at the new snow interface (about 35cm) and again at 1 meter (also healed). Reaching around 5700ft the new old snow interface deteriorated and showed less signs of good bonding and a more upside down feel. One handpit on a north aspect about 5000k showed similar stability and bonding to the south aspect however. North aspect slopes showed significantly more old crown lines from the atmospheric river storm—at least from my location.
Observed Avalanche Problem #2:
North aspects had noticeably more crown lines visible from the atmospheric river event. Although a quick hand pit on the north aspect did not confirm it, the colder bed snow may have bonded poorly to the new snow compared to the south aspect
