Observed evidence of some past Wet loose avalanches( d1) on slopes above 35degrees. Sorry , didn't get a picture.
Signs of Unstable Snow
Left early to avoid traveling the chute in the afternoon, only two other small parties besides mine at that time. Coming down we were surprised to see the crowds. Saw over 20 people that were just getting to the bottom of the chute at noon and were planning to travel upwards. The chute was good in the morning with little sun exposure and just us traveling it. We traveled quickly by large trees as they were starting to drop large snow/ ice balls from the sun.
