Subject: The freeze is not deep!

Avalanches:Some older wet and dry slabs. Only recent looking activity came out of steep, rocky West facing, tho all we could see was the toe of a large debris pile.

Weather: Sunny, warm, barely a lick of wind.

Snowpack: 4-6” thick freeze was supportive all morning. Snow below was sometimes large grained and wet, sometimes large grained and dry. Lower elevation are pretty trap-door pretty quick with the sun and warm temps. Several collapses noted as it began to thaw.
