Along with the noted avalanches we got small pockets to pull out of Candys and Sonic. Both running on the 1/6 interface as well. The sonic debris was much needed to fill in the massive wind whales below the choke.

Snowpack: Party Hats Left had a progressively stiffening (4f-1f) 30cm slab that felt hollow while probing around that was noticed full path. The avalanches in EBM are running on the 1/6 MFcr. East and south snow surfaces were moist by 1400.
