Went hunting for wind loaded aspects at Crystal. Found small wind slabs popping off all over the place on south and southeast aspects inbounds between 5500ft and 6500ft. Each was isolated but the snow was highly, highly reactive and broke at low angles with little loading and slower cuts. All broke on Friday's rain crust found at depths between 6 and 12 inches in wind loaded areas. The rain crust measured up to 1 inch thick in many spots and sat on top of surprisingly dry, unconsolidated snow. While these were isolated wind slabs that were easy to identify and manage, they were extremely touchy. I wouldn't be surprised to see storm slabs failing naturally despite the relatively slower loading that's expected over the next few days.
