Avalanches: Widespread natural avalanche cycle below treeline yesterday or last night. D1’s to D2’s in size, crowns looked to be about 10″-14″ deep, and some very wide propagation, full path. Probably failed on 1/19 surface hoar. Most paths viewed were E or NE (Gibson Ridge, Peanut Road, Climax Chutes), but there were also a few on southerly. Looked at one roadside crown on a SW aspect and it failed on SH above a crust. Also a D2 in Coon Bowl  (SE)and D1.5ish crown in Red Lady Bowl (SE).
