<p>New snow at millers flat was 25 cm.&nbsp;Wind was blowing hard from the west.&nbsp; Large cornice build up from East to North East. New snow was already stripped from pack. Still a lot of snow transport.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
Comments
<p>Looks like the slide was early this morning. There was also two smaller cornice failures along wedding ring ridge.</p>
