A large chunk of ice released (bottom right of photo) and slid down a chute to climbers left of the uphill route to the basin under Chair Peak. The ice chunk triggered a wet loose avalanche (center of photo) and then slide down a couple hundred feet until stopping, the track is easily seen in the photo. The triggered avalanche was near to the uphill track but stopped much higher than the ice chunk, uncertain of the width due to the distance of observation.
Signs of Unstable Snow
The snow softened up much quicker than expected due to the heat of the sun as opposed to the predicted clouds. Arrived at the basin under Chair Peak around noon to very wet snow and decided to turn around. On the ski out we noticed some roller balls caused by harder turns.
