Subject: Naturals all over. + still occurring?


Natural Avalanches in Redwell in steep N facing terrain, and fairly certain one slid on a NE aspect in the morning of the 19th between 8 and 10 a.m. All d1 to 1.5 appearing to fail in storm snow. Also several slides of a similar size on E and SE further down the basin. Large avalanche over on the Ruby/Owen saddle.

Weather: Clear and relatively calm up high. Winds felt 15-20 mph at most, leading to some transport. It looked like winds were howling on a few nearby peaks.

Snowpack: No signs of instability noticed while skiing some nice low angle pow
