first two photos is of sluffs that ran on the SE face of Cascade, the longest of which ran estimated 600-800 vertical feet. Ran around 11 am today.

third photo is north face of schuykill sub peak above the eastern side of camo glades. Estimated crown width 300-400 feet, running 100 feet or so, maybe 12 inch crown, guessing it ran either end of day yesterday or sometime this morning.

Last photo is SSW facing, wet loose, just reaching our sled track from the morning. Guessing it ran 800-1000 vertical feet, sometime early afternoon today.

Weather: intermittent snow all day, staying surprisingly cold in the trees. sun peaking out occasionally and warming the air and non-sheltered snow rapidly.
