still very active with numerous hard signs of instability [recent avalanches (yesterday), shooting cracks (today) and collapses (today) on all aspects ATL].
known poor structure in this zone from prior weeks obs. with recent load and hard signs did not bother with tests, don't think can outwit this one yet. keep it simple. skier triggered avalanches still likely.
clr --> bkn --> obs by afternoon with flurries.

skiied low angle S trending terrain at higher altitudes where now sufficient HS (60-70) to avoid running aground.
