Zone or Region:
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Size 2: Could bury, injure, or kill a person
Wet slab from mid-winter PWL broke mid-slope on what I believe to be Kyes Peak across valley. Crown appeared several meters deep.
Full hot pow to mank to firn to corn in a three day cycle, ending with current hot spell. Glide and wet slabs seem like they are really going to begin their summer loosening this week (1-4 June).
Observed Avalanche Problem #1: Deep Persistent Slab
Comments: Mid-winter PWL is still active and just needs lubrication from water percolation or a trigger like a cornice breaking.
