Location: Elk basin area, no name ridge
Aspect: South East, South, South West
Avalanches: A few D2’s off of primarily southern aspect, solar influenced. 1 ran at ~10am, the others maybe 2 hours after. 2 shaped drainages in the lower reaches slid wall to wall, likely during our last load

Snowpack: Guess what? It’s all facets.
130cm hst, 3 melt freeze crusts 3cm or thinner, about 20cm apart, all facets from about 40cm down. With about 20cm of windbuff on top. Like sour cream on top of a rotten burrito.
