Comments

Significant natural cycle in last wind event in Cascade. D2's and D3's off all the high East walls from White Limbo to Shingle Mill. Size 3 off the SE aspect of Third Hole as well. (Photos below)  Overall HS around 120-140cm in the benign terrain in Big Springs.  Pencil hard wind slabs in the uppers, isolated to the top portions of the runs.  Q2 shears observed with limited propagation below the mid-pack slab, poor overall structure.
