Comments
Skied several drainages around the interface of upper LCC and BCC and noted that storm snow in the early afternoon was generally lacking slab quality. wind slabs main problem observed and prevalent in upper elevations . Skied Bronco Couloir at approx 2:30pm. The couloir was scoured at the top but fractured where it got deeper around the trees mid-couloir. Skied out in front without being caught. Avalanche debris triggered the upper fan wider than the couloir. SS-AS-R2-D1.5
