I was glassing for recent avalanche activity. Many small wet loose avalanches released on Tuesday at middle and lower elevations, mostly W and E aspects. All the slides ran close to the ground, in areas with thin snowpacks (about a foot deep), in middle and lower elevation terrain below 6600'.
Hot, spring-like weather.
