Upper White Pine was popping with avalanches today!  Anything over 34 degrees was very sensitive to skiers and there was a lot of natural activity. The slides were breaking out entire bowls and leaving 2 - 4 feet of very heavy debris.  I think the danger for today was a solid "Considerable" and if you ventured into higher, more exposed terrain, I'd even call it "high."
