Third time I have typed this so sorry its short. 
 
I am still uncertain about lower elevation snowpacks.  This is an interesting avalanche in an interesting spot.   I feel that on southerlies the problem may be healing but I dont know how widespread this is around the zone.  I still feel that spacial variability is high with the avalanche problem.   Layer was unreactive in ECT times 2.  I did fail the older snow underneath Q3
