We went in today with the goal of avoiding slopes greater than 35 degrees, but some localized/smaller slopes were steeper. We also aimed for sheltered/treed skiing. We traveled on northerly aspects from the hyak parking lot up to the top of the old growth glades near Roaring Ridge, sticking to the tree line or the forest roads while skinning.
The snow was dense/noticeably heavier than previous storms we've gotten. We didn't notice any instability or warning signs on the way up, but as mentioned did our best to avoid consequential slopes. In one of the clearings, as the trees got denser, and a little steeper terrain, we were traversing and triggered two small wet slabs that ran for about 10 ft, containing the 6-8 inches that were the most recent storm.
