Zone or Region:
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Dry Loose (Sluff)
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
Multiple dry loose naturally occurring avalanches noted on west slopes. Avalanches were relatively small, D1.
Did you see shooting cracks? Yes, Isolated
Did you experience collapsing or whumpfing? No
We encountered multiple small and isolated wind slabs on west facing slopes west of Glacier Vista. The slabs collapsed under skier weight, but due to the low angle of the terrain we were skiing didn't not move more than a foot or so. In addition, we saw several loose dry natural avalanches on west aspects, and a very small skier triggered dry loose on an isolated south facing slope.
