Small (D1), recent wind slab avalanches were observed near the Little Wood Reservoir. I glassed lots of other slopes further into the Little Wood and Muldoon without seeing additional slides.
Clear and blue. Warm (but not balmy) in the valley bottom in the afternoon.
I saw three D1 wind slabs on E and SE-facing slopes at middle and lower elevations. See photo.
Just about all slopes have seen heavy weathering from sun and wind. Some obvious surface hoar on N-facing, sheltered, low, and middle elevations.
Steep S and SW-facing slopes were mostly bare up above 9,000', exacerbated by wind-scouring.
