Comments

We found this decent wet loose avalanche today on the east side of the Divide. It most likely occurred last night or early this morning during the rain. The snow in this low elevation zone is completely saturated to the ground. It is the same path that covered and closed the road during the last avalanche cycle a few weeks ago. 

Skinning conditions were better than expected - didn't sink in too much. Turning conditions were challenging - sticky and slow.
