Comments
A couple turns towards the Hallway flushed it, so went back up and over to Days. One step onto Main Days released a storm slab that propagated across most of the bowl. Heading back past Upper Days we got it to go as well. Even Emmas were touchy. Very sensitive new/old snow interface with surprisingly wide propagation.
