Observed two avalanches today, which probably ran around 11/29 or 11/30. One was a R1/D1.5 on the NE aspect of Mann's peak. Another, a R1/D1 was observed in Colorado Bowl, a more easterly aspect around 11,000'.
Abundant past wind transport was evident, both from the South as well as the North sides of the compass.
A bit surprised to not see more activity after the 11/28/19 storm.
Most areas near and above treeline look like good skiing for a sastrugi samurai-until we get the next storm.
