 Comments: Frost:
Two slides at low elevations that appear wind-loaded. Either SE or E aspects. One near cat ski terrain, between Peak 1 and 2 a few hundred feet wide 10-18" deep, north-facing terrain.

Westy:
We only had 1 obvious slide outside the ski area. 7,000' SE facing looks like it went on the December drought layer. Steve Frost is going to send you a pic. Nothing major in the cat skiing area. Hasty pits are showing CT 12-15 Q2 on that same layer in the facets just under a weak crust. New snow is bonding well. More to come.
