Warm with lots of ambient solar radiation bouncing around today. These conditions were promoting melting and snowpack consolidation. Noticed some natural point-release wet snow avalanches that had likely failed during afternoon sunshine the day before and watched a small, natural point release in shaded terrain late in the morning. All wind slabs that I encountered were well bonded to the underlying snow and unreactive. I did not observe any avalanches that had failed underneath the new snow at the 10/24 interface.
HS=5cm at 7,000', 30-50cm at 8,500' (depending on if there is older snow underneath), and 50-70cm at 10,000'.
