Clear skies and calm winds.
No recent avalanches observed.
Quick afternoon ski to look at the 2/9 crust in this area, surfaces in general, and the amount of melting going on. I was in the field from 1200-1300. Flats were still completely frozen on exit from field, SE-S were starting to warm up and break down, but weren't quite there yet (skiing was supportable and predictable). Below the softening crust were dry to barely moist facets, don't think there was going to be any sort of wet loose problem in this location today. 2/9 crust is present on all aspects up to at least 7,500', on shadies it is a 1.5-2cm icy crust, with some water-ice menisci between grains. On solars its a more common ambient temp+sun MFcr. As noted earlier, this could be a problematic layer on lower and mid-elevation shadies in this zone (and Banner likely) and should be kept in mind when we start to load things again.
I did not encounter any avalanche problems today.
Terrain use was dictated by skiability (avoiding frozen crusts and trapdoor conditions).
