Traveled in Tye Peak/Tye Lake zone up to 5400 feet on E/N/W aspects, discovering fairly widespread breakable windboard (1-5cm in thickness) making for challenging ski conditions. Temps remained cold under clear skies with winds out of the S/SE. Southerly slopes above pass level remained cold and non sun affected through mid day.
Isolated, small shooting cracks in steeper wind loaded terrain, otherwise test slopes producing no results.
Observed two presumed natural wind slab avalanches in Skyline West bowl, occurring in the last 48hrs (not present on 2/22).
