Tried to make my way up to the great Scott bowl, but it was a slog trail breaking in knee to waist deep powder. Made it to 4k elevation up in the upper unicorn area. There was a clearing and as I was traversing it felt a little slabby the way I was sinking far down. So I got about a third way up and dug a pit to the ground that measured 200 cm. I found facets at 95cm. My pictures don’t document the column test well but I did the column test with 5 light taps and 5 medium taps. The column exploded down to 120cm by medium tap 3. All that storm snow is light and fluffy. On medium tap 5 the column slab broke off the facets at 95cm. I was traversing alone so thought best mitigate risk and go back into the thicker part of the trees before ultimately failing to get to gsb due to time and a pole breaking.
Other than that I didn’t witness or hear any natural avalanches. I didn’t witness any cracking while touring. There was some dry loose sluff in the mushroom coulior.
