Comments
There were dozens of small and a few medium sized natural soft slab avalanches and sluffs visible in the Tony Grove Lake Area.  Soft storm and wind slab avalanches were also fairly widespread in the Mt. Magog Area as seen in occasional clearing from the flats below. 
Comments
We found very nice deep powder riding conditions in lower angled terrain, but the somewhat inverted snow was too deep for me to ski on slopes less than about 30 degrees... Here's a picture of the bathrooms at the Tony Grove Campground and Tony Grove Lake with over 100" of total snow at the nearby Snotel.
