Zone or Region:
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
~15 cm max crown, 100' wide, seen from N at 5500', looks like wind slab (wavy crown), looks natural. People nonetheless skinned and skied below it without incident.
We got propagation at about 17 cm, at the MLK crust, but we had to bang on it (27 taps). E aspect 5250'. Skiing hard produced no reaction. HS 0-90 cm, quite bony and rocky in places.
