MESSAGE
 Comments: We skied a max of 28 degrees, mostly east facing, off what someone told us was called Avalanche Peak (this was our first time in the area), no real in your face red flags besides the forecast and the one smallish slide we saw. Temperature in the low 30s, the solar aspects were warm by 1 and we observed rollerballs and natural wet point releases on the drive back to Sun Valley. Warmer than the weather report I had gotten, I would expect solars to be pretty crusted by tomorrow.

Locals here are friendly! Had a great time borrowing your mountains, thanks!
