It appears the cornice above the Thunder Creek Exit broke at some point and triggered a soft slab a few hundred feet down. The crown was about 10 inches deep and did not run very far.
Night tour of the Slot and Snot couloirs. Some sluffing in the Slot, but no signs of slabbing. However, the apron has a fair bit of debris that is not fully covered by new snow so the Slot likely ran during the storm last weekend. The Snot felt like generally better snow quality, not as buffed around but that could just be because we had fresh tracks in it.
Thin sun crust had refrozen on open southern aspects below 5k. Otherwise, the snow is still very light and fun.
