Zone or Region:
Did you trigger any avalanches? Yes
Was it intentional? No
Size 1: Relatively harmless to people
6800 feet, slide a hundred feet or so
Triggered slowly moving wet slide on steeper convexity. About 6-8 inches deep (new snow mostly) and 10-15 feet wide. See photo of slide and debris.
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes

We topped out at 7.6k and avalanches noted on all aspects surrounding mountains
Notes all aspects. See photo.
We topped out about 7.6 k. Was a very mixed bag. Early in the day snow level was about 5.8 but as day progressed would see a mix of heavy wet flakes to graupel, and even a little rain, even at upper elevations. Sun poked out some. Moderate winds at ridge line. Lots of wet loose on all aspects. Skiing down was primarily rain at tree line. Sled ride out was all rain.
