Avalanches:
Weather: Warm, definitely felt like it hit 30F today. Sunny all day, light winds in the morning then super calm in the afternoon.
Snowpack: Snow depth avg was 70 cm (but skied like 82cm!) Did not see or feel any signs of instability throughout our 3 laps. Used the usual skin track in the trees, it is in good shape I made a few improvements. I put in the lap track in. Looked at the remote trigger from yesterday, it seemed to be in a steeper area that had a bit of wind loading but still feels like it was a bit odd. I have not seen that spot slide.
