Aspect: South East, South, South West, West

Avalanches:
Weather: snowing s1-s3 most of the morning. Strong northwest? winds all day with large snow plumes coming off of baldy and growing cornices, see photo.
Snowpack: New snow about 10 inches. Several small underfoot collapses on south facing skintrack 9,500-11,000. Wind drifting snow into leeward southeastern terrain near and above treeline. We skied southern through western aspects with no results save one very small pocket of storm snow on a convex roll, see photo. Also skied and skinned a few inconsequential southeastern wind loaded pockets, and while it felt slabby underfoot we got zero results.
